Preparing peremech, the traditional Tatar pastry, is besides horsemeat sausages a joint activity, which brings Mishär Tatars together. Learning to fold the edge in the right way is a skill children acquire from an early age. Usually, peremech is prepared in big quantities by many people together for celebrations or guests. When Tatars meet, the talk often turns to food and eventually to peremech. Even just talking about the pastries awakens positive memories and feelings and brings Tatars closer to each other. Peremech pastries are consumed with sour cream or fat yoghurt, pickled cucumbers, or other pickled vegetables, but every family has their own preferences for the serving. Leftovers can be frozen, in the rare case there are any. Photo Fazile Nasretdin 1995
