I can’t wait to try these again. I had them a few years ago, but now, I hope to have a local show me the real thing!!!
Pierogies from Poland are semicircular noodle dough dumplings often filled with fresh quark, boiled and minced potatoes, and fried onions. They can also be stuffed with sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese and fruits. I think I prefer ground meat.
Head to Krakow in the summer for the annual Pierogi Festival, during which tens of thousands of the dumplings are ritually devoured.
It seems many cultures have a version of this: China has the won ton, Japan has the gyoza, the Italians have the ravioli.
A big glass of beer or wine might be just perfect with these pierogis. Cheers, or Bonzai!!!!
