Check this page frequently for information on new events, international recipes, music, and more. We hope it'll help you meet more people in the HLS community, discover a new passion, and—most importantly—de-stress!

A Georgian soup dumpling, similar to Xiao Long Bao, that is traditionally eaten plain or with black pepper among friends and family. These juicy dumplings can have stuffing made from cheese, mushrooms, lamb, or potato, but the most common is a meaty stuffing made with pork and beef. The stuffing releases a savory broth when cooked so sure to eat them with your hands for maximum flavor. Thanks to HLS senior Evan Wright for the recipe and suggestion!
