Russia School Lunch - Pizza and Meat Pies



Country: Russia (Saint-Petersburg - Art School)

Contents: There are several lunch items for sale here: small pie with meat, a small pizza, and something called "sausage in dough."

Submitted by: Darya

Notes: Those all seem like items you would find in the USA as well. They are sort of like calzones or pot pies, pizza is the same, and the last item is like "pigs in a blanket."

  7. The thing on the left looks like piroshki, which is yeast dough stuffed with meat (and maybe vegetables) and then baked/fried. Very tasty, and depending on the filling and cooking method, could be healthy or not.

  10. This was one the better school lunch foods in Russia, one of the few that kid could eat without their teacher threatening to give them a failing grade for behavior (behavior was graded) if they don't eat. Paired with warm tea, this was a nice lunch, 1000 times better than farina with milk (mannaya kasha) they served at other times.
