The American Dream: An Old European Recipe And A Converted RV

May 9, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A Ukrainian immigrant has combined his love of American culture and passion for making a traditional Russian-Ukrainian food into a thriving Los Angeles-based business. Igor Avramenko converted a silvery 50-year-old Airstream RV – it represents “the freedom of the American dream,” he says – into a food truck where he makes and sells about 350 pirozhkis a day. Using his Ukrainian grandmother's recipe, he makes the dough for the torpedo-shaped rolls with milk, butter, flour, sugar and salt, then packs them with beef, chicken, spinach, cheese and potato. For a complete meal, customers can also buy a cup of Avramenko’s homemade borscht.
