  1. Hello, I'm the staff of JTBC's <Baek Jong Won's Taste Story>. I have a question regarding the use of this material because I think it will be helpful for our program. I contacted you via e-mail, can you check it?

  2. The pirogies can be filled with sautéed onion, sausage, mashed potatoes and shredded cheese, served with sour cream. Of course the size would be bigger😃😋😋😋😋

  3. Omg! You are a great cook. I can only watch and wish I can cook like you someday. You obviously are very skillful and talented. Love to Zainab.

  4. ماشاء الله شكلها لذيذ لكن يااختي حاولي تتعودي تاكلي بيدك اليمين 💕

  5. Brilliant video. Thank you for the information about the history and origin of manti. In Palestine we have a similar version of manti that is made in the shape of a small crescent filled with the mince meat filling, then the two tales of the crescent are joined together to make a shape like a little hat. Some cooks like to dry them a little in the oven before adding them to the boiling yoghurt sauce. They are called Shish Barak and some ladies call them the funny name ..the Ears of cats 🙂

  6. Just finish lunch, not too much eat little bit but after watch it feeling Hungry.

  12. Sister, you're absolutely fabulous. I just learn that our national dish originates in Mongolia, interesting… We call them halušky here. The traditional form is they are covered with soft sheep cheese and there are mashed potatoes in the dough. You may add a bit of sour cream on the top and a few tiny pieces of bacon. They are also eaten plain as a side dish to another main dishes like guláš or kurací perkelt. Wow, your channel is the most informative I have seen on YouTube after a long while, maşallah! ❤🍽❤
