Making pierogi is an art. There's a dumpling in almost every type of ethnic food: lumpia, gyoza, tortellini, tamales - and so many more. And each of them is the kind of special food that you don't eat every day, or make every day, but when you do, you commit, and mean it, and do it with love. I got my pierogi recipe and process from my mom, and my babci, and my old babci. And the Dec. 5th Sermonarian episode talks ALL about it.
