In marrying a Polish man, I felt it was my wifely duty to perfect the most popular dish know to Polish culture: the Pierogi. Before meeting Justin, I never had a Pierogi before, and I taught myself how to make them, blindly without having ever tasted one. Since I’ve mastered my own Pierogi recipe, it has become one of Justin’s favorite things that I cook. I must admit, they’re addictive – how could you not like potato and cheese stuffed in delicious dough, served with sour cream?
Recently I've gotten more experimental with both my pierogi fillings and cooking techniques. I've made some Buffalo Chicken Pierogies as well as Italian Pierogies (stuffed with fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomato confit). But alas, I always come back to the beginning: the Potato and Cheese Pierogi.
