This is a Russian friend whose perfect description of how to make Piroshki I couldn’t help but film, there in the Chemist’s, last spring.

I am going to start really making it a point to film people’s hands when they describe how to prepare food. I had a bunch more that were lost in my computer fiasco, but I’m going to begin again. There is so much memory and knowledge in the hands, and a moving performance when they are used this way.

Hey! If you notice someone telling a recipe with their hands, and you are able to film, could you please give it a go, and share with me? I’d love to see if this idea could grow. Thank you!
