Chef’s Corner

Candy Polk

Italian Perogies

This month, we are sharing a dish that combines the classic comfort foods of mashed potatoes, dumplings and two classic sauces in a unique way. Pierogis are a filled dumpling made by wrapping unleavened dough around a savory or sweet filling and cooked in boiling water. They are most often associated with the cuisine of Central and Eastern European nations. This recipe fuses garden-fresh vegetables with popular Italian sauces and the filled dumplings of Eastern and Central Europe. It’s like a little European vacation for your taste buds. Join us on Tuesday, April 20, to try this dish at the Roastery for lunch or try it at home.
