You can experience an authentic cooking experience of baking pirozhki in Hakodate, where the cultures of Russia and Japan have mixed. The workshop is held at a café made from a renovated old Japanese house, which has been sharing a new food culture.

Pirozhki, a stuffed bread you will cook in this experience, is popular in Japan. Deep-frying is a common cooking method in other areas of Japan, but the traditional oven-baked cooking is still in use here in Hakodate.

After you come to the café, the staff will give you a simple explanation. The ingredients and seasonings are already prepared neatly, just like paints on a pallet. You will mix the ingredients with a spoon as you like, and make a few kinds of fillings. Wrap the fillings with dough and let them rest. While the dough is fermenting, let’s cook borscht and salad to complete a full set of Russian home cooking.

The original recipe includes unique ingredients from Hakodate, such as Ezo-shika (Hokkaido deer) and Ezo-maitake mushroom, and is dedicated to the authentic cooking. The flavor has been enjoyed by not only Japanese tourists but also international students from Russia, the home of the dishes.
