My Nanny has been making pierogi for a LONG time. Ever since I can remember, pierogi has been part of our family. We wouldn't have it every weekend at Nanny's, but certainly often enough for it to be a favourite. And I've only ever assisted Nanny with making it.
Until a couple of weekends ago.
A few girls at college, including Aleks from Poland, were keen for a pierogi party and they made it happen! I was SO excited, but very nervous. What if it was a disaster? What if I couldn't cook pierogi? The pressure was intense!
We got together on the Saturday morning and with some tunes in the background, we got straight to work. We first mixed up the pasta dough and did a bit of kneading. Because we are non-discriminatory pierogi-makers, and there was a vegan amongst us, we made a few different types; the traditional pork, traditional spinach and feta, spinach and feta with rye dough, and spinach with rye dough (vegan).
