These four soups represent some of my family's traditions. Frikadelki are turkey meatballs. My dad hated the ones served in Soviet canteens, but my mum's were amazing; she'd use quality meat and our preserved herbs, which you couldn't get anywhere else. My pelmeni are one of my favorite foods. These Siberian dumplings were made for me by my grandmother, who left Siberia for Uzbekistan before settling in Ukraine, bringing her daughter and her dumpling recipe with her. The duck borscht shows off the fizzy tomato purée, and the yogurt soup is filled with fresh sorrel, my favorite green, which can be hard to find, even in London. I've modernized the presentation of the recipes a bit, but the ingredients remain the same, a taste of the seasons of old Ukraine.
