A family recipe that is too good to share
Making pierogi is something Erica Pietrzyk has done since she was a kid. Making pierogi was a family activity. Everyone would come over to the house, and the day would be filled with lots of potato peeling, and pierogi stuffing. Frequently this was done around a major holiday, like Christmas or Easter, but sometimes it would be done just because.
A new twist on pierogi in the D
However, there is a local pierogi shop that is putting a new twist on this food, stuffing with them creative fillings or transforming into something brand new like a taco! The place is responsible for these fun creations is Pietrzyk Pierogi in Detroit. Pietrzyk Pierogi has been at its location in Gratiot Central Market for about a year. At their store, Pietrzyk sells a range of pierogi along with soups and different polish street eats. They also have fun pierogi inventions like their taco pierogi and Yaki rogi, their take on a Japanese pancake.
