Lithuania - Cepelenai

Does anyone have any tips on making Cepelenai, the national dish of Lithuania. I want to cook that next week. Something to do with dumplings I believe and we have never done anything where we have to build something before cooking. Please, please, please can we include bacon?

There's pictures and step-by-step instructions here How to Make Lithuanian Cepelinai Dumplings - Step-by-Step Instructions for Making Lithuanian Cepelinai Dumplings . It's not hard to make the dumplings, just a little practice. I make similar ones for my DH, stuffed German potato dumplings.

Seems to be some debate on how much boiled versus raw grated potato to use.

Also, I can see these things falling apart in whe water whilst cooking. Is there some secret to avoid that drama?

BACON = !!!!

Hi Jason,

What's been happening with your around the world food tour? How many countries did you end up getting to? Is there a way of showing the videos here or embedding them in the posts?

Where's the next country stop? :-)

A newspaper article a couple of years ago announced that the national dish of the UK was chicken tikka masala but I think that was a little tongue in cheek.
Tongue in cheek? Not at all! Chicken Tikka Masala originated in Glasgow and these days is universally agreed to be Britain's favourite dish. If you haven't reached Britain yet in your cooking quest, you could cover Scotland, England, Wales, and Northern Ireland with a single dish, but you'd better hurry because Britain is currently coming apart at the seams with their Brexit vote.

(Do you find it odd that the recipe originated in Glasgow? There's an entire class of Subcontinental cooking called Balti that originated in Pakistan, but thrived so well in Birmingham and Manchester that it has been exported back to India/Pakistan and is all the rage.)

I just had a couchsurfer visiting and she showed me how to prepare Schnitzel! This was delicious!

What are you going to do for Italy? Bear in mind that Italians do not do spaghetti bolognese - it's tagliatelle alla Bolognese, and comes only from Bologna, whereas
pizzas are made everywhere here!

Greece: moussaka?

Yeah, kinda makes it impossible to have a "National Dish" when there are many regions in the same country.

The OP hasn't posted in almost a year and a half, so I wouldn't count on getting any replies
