Discover why pierogis could be the next food trend! Casey Barber, food writer, cookbook author, photographer and recipe developer, shares the culinary influence behind this sweet or savory dumpling.

Pierogi is specific to the Polish cuisine. With a sizeable Polish-American population, both Chicago and Pittsburgh share boasting rights for the best pierogis. In her new cookbook, Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food, Casey adds a modern twist to traditional dishes with fun ingredients for her recipes. According to Casey, you can be creative in the fillings for the pierogis. Perhaps the sweet pierogis will become the new donut and cupcake trend! It’s easy to make and is a great idea for serving leftovers. I will definitely try making a turkey and dressing pierogo during the Thanksgiving and holiday seasons! Meanwhile, you will enjoy the recipes featured in Casey’s new cookbook.

If you live in the Chicago area, please come meet Casey Barber and get a signed copy of her new book on September 13th at LoKal. ChicagoGourmets is hosting a signature dinner of pierogis. To reserve your seat, visit www.chicagogourmets.org
