God Bless the Pierogi ... and butter too!
Pierogi are served in a variety of forms and tastes (ranging from sweet to salty to spicy) in Polish cuisine, considered to be the Polish national dish. Pierogi were traditionally peasant food, but eventually spread in popularity throughout all social classes, including nobles. They are served at many festivals, playing an important role as a cultural dish. At the 2007 Pierogi Festival in Kraków, 30,000 pierogi were consumed daily.
Polish pierogi are often filled with fresh white cheese (curd, pot cheese), boiled and minced potatoes, and fried onions, which is the most popular variety in North America. This type is called in Polish pierogi ruskie, which literally means "Rutheniann pierogi" (not "Russian).
A filling is made of cooked potatoes, a white cheese and stir-fried onion. Ruskie pierogi is probably the most popular kind of pierogi in North America.
Pierogi is probably the only Polish dish that has its own patron saint. "Swiety Jacek z pierogami!", (St. Hyacinth and his pierogi!) is an old expression of surprise, roughly equivalent to the American "good grief" or "holy smokes!". The origin of this expression is unknown.
