& why it made the Carpe City list
Pierogis are Eastern/Central European dumplings filled with a wide variety of options, like ground meat, cheese, potato, and even fruit. Pierogis are said to have originated in China and brought to the West by Marco Polo, but it’s also claimed they’re from Russia. Pierogis are fairly easy to make — all you have to do is cut the dough in a circle, place the stuffing in the circle, and seal the dough into a crescent shape — Viola! Pierogis are seen all over the world now — even America has adopted this delicious delicacy into its culture. The Pittsburgh Pirates hold a “pierogi race” at their stadium. The runners are Sauerkraut Saul, Cheese Chester, Jalapeno Hannah, Oliver Onion, Potato Pete, Bacon Burt, and Pizza Penny!
