The United States celebrates National Pierogi Day every October 8th, giving the American palate a Central European twist through the delectable combination of flour, eggs, and vegetable or meat fillings. A pierogi is essentially a dumpling with a uniquely Eastern and Central European heritage. When people think of dumplings, they often imagine a Southeast Asian restaurant, but pierogis are far more interesting.

Today, the pierogi is a popular item in Canadian and American cooking. People enjoy it with ground meat, mushroom, sauerkraut, or potato fillings. Like most festival foods, the origin of the pierogi is the stuff of legends, and many historians trace its roots back to 13th century Europe.

Reputable sources say that the people of Kościelec, Poland, began assembling pierogis one harvest season for a famous missionary after a storm ravaged their crops. Others say that Hyacinth of Poland, the Dominican missionary, brought pierogis to Europe from the Far East. The mystery only adds to the flavor.

How to Celebrate Pierogi Day

A pierogi is as filling as it is simple to prepare. Many American households have innovative versions of these pierogis that appeal to their tastes or unique cultural backgrounds. For example, you might want to create a new pierogi with cheese, mashed potatoes, onions, cabbage, fruit, sauerkraut, or ground meat combinations (sour cream, melted butter, or green onion dip make it truly yours, as well).

If you have a sweet tooth, use chocolate, maple syrup, or applesauce fillings topped with whipped cream. It’s a culinary experiment, and there is no wrong way to celebrate #PierogiDay
