I have cooked Pierogi several times in my life, but I eat it certainly each time I visit Poland. Pierogi with potatoes and cream cheese are definatly my faviorite. In my family we do huge pierogi – as my mother loves them with a lot of filling. Well, that’s the way they should taste for me.
Pierogi were known in Poland already in the 13th century (in Polish literature the word pierogi appears for the first time in the second half of the 17th century. Probably pierogi come from China and got to Europe during the expeditions of Marco Polo.
The first time when I cooked pierogi in a group was in Trier with my dearest Erasmus friends. We, polish ladies, wanted to cook at some point something traditional and we have chosen exactly this dish. I think this evening will stay in our memories!
Te second time I cooked pierogi with my friends from Frankfurt. That was such great cooperation! I am so proud of all of you. They tasted like at home.. and they turned out to be very pretty as well. Well done my friends, I am so glad I have such great cooking team here in Frankfurt.
