Please help us raise money for UNICEF by contributing to #CookForUkraine, a movement started by food industry professionals banding together to celebrate Ukrainian culture and provide vital support to children and families affected by the ongoing crisis.
Here, the Studio Chefs have interpreted a traditional Ukrainian potato pancake with their favorite local caviar, sour cream, and chives. This dish is absolutely delicious for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as an appetizer or a main with a fresh arugula salad on the side.
Check out the Just Giving page here, and be sure to post and tag your pancakes with #CookForUkraine to raise awareness and inspire others to donate.
Truffle Shuffle Family
Deruny with Sour Cream & Caviar
2 pounds (about 4) Yukon Gold potatoes
1 medium yellow onion
1 large egg
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ bunch chives, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons sour cream
Caviar (optional, our favorite is Royal Californian sturgeon caviar from The Caviar Co.)
Grapeseed or canola oil
Set a fine mesh strainer over a large mixing bowl.
Peel the potatoes and onion, then grate into the strainer using the star tip side of your box grater. Squeeze and push out any liquid until the potato and onion mixture is as dry as possible.
Once the liquid has drained from both the onions and the potatoes, discard the liquid, wipe the bowl clean, and set the grated potato/onion mixture into the bowl.
Add the egg, flour, salt, and baking soda and mix thoroughly. This is yo batta!!!
In a large non-stick saute pan, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan, about 2-3 tablespoons.
Add 1 heaping tablespoon of batter to make pancakes, keeping 1” away from each other. Fry each side for about 3-4 mins.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of chives, and paddle of caviar. Take a photo, tag #CookForUkraine to raise awareness about the fundraising campaign, and please donate if you're able!
