If you live in New York, you probably haven’t noticed that winter’s coming to an end — because you haven’t realized it even started! Nevertheless, Maslenitsa, the Orthodox pancake week symbolizing the end of the cold season, is already well under way. And what’s not to love about a week dedicated to stuffing yourself with dairy products? So here are some recipes you should try before Sunday:
- To cover the bases: Blini and Oladi, Russian Pancakes, and Deruny, Ukrainian Potato Pancakes.
- If you’re looking for savory toppings on your pancakes, try the Pressed King Crab, Bok Choy and Mint, or the Lake Trout Rillettes.
- For dessert, thank California for its never-ending growing season and make some Blueberry Jam, or Sour Cream Ice Cream and Strawberry Preserves.
