Zoltan’s Sauerkraut Pie Of Strength - a signature dish that can satisfy even the greediest eaters, looking for a rich meal after a frosty day. The dwarf learned kulebiak in Mahakam, but the dish also became popular beyond its borders so Zoltan felt free to serve his companions a pie of his own composition.
When the snow almost covers the view of the world through the warm room’s window, it’s good to enjoy a filling meal of a crispy pie with an aromatic sauerkraut and mushrooms filling!
