Pierogi Class

Last night was Pierogi class! Pierogi (plural form) are delicious Polish dumplings filled with savory or sweet fillings. The dough is rolled out, circles are cut and filling placed on each circle. Each pierogi is carefully sealed and boiled in water. They can be eaten at this point, but we fry them with onions in butter to make them extra delicious. We made two fillings: Potato and Cheese and Sauerkraut and Mushroom.

Pierogi continues to be one of our most popular classes and yesterday's was no exception as it was was filled to capacity with eager students. I didn't take any photos during last night's class, but I do have a film clip (in slow motion) of the final preparation of pierogi making from my home kitchen. Enjoy the sizzle!
