About Anna Tvelova
Anna is from Russia and it was her mom who taught her how to cook piroshki! In Anda Piroshki each matryoshka also represents one of the main food groups: Grains, Fruit, Vegetables and Protein! She cooks traditional russian piroshki using healthy ingredients and healthy cooking techniques because she wants people (her family, customers and friends) to be healthy and happy enjoying delicious festivity of life. AЙDA PiROSHKi recently start serving up her delicious, piping hot piroshki daily as the newest vendor at 331 Courtland.
