I’m excited beyond words to announce that my new cookbook, Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food, will arrive in stores on July 1, 2015!
Featuring 60 recipes for both sweet and savory pierogies in flavors you’ve never envisioned—I’m talking scallion pancake pierogies, French onion soup dumpling pierogies with crispy Gruyere frico, sweet potato pie-rogies with pecan praline and toasted marshmallow fluff, and our cover model, pickled strawberry jam pierogies with white chocolate sauce—Pierogi Love takes that humble little dumpling far away from its familiar home in church basements and potluck suppers. As I noted in the book’s introduction, what I’m saying is that you might need to sit your grandma down before showing her Pierogi Love.
If you’ve never made a pierogi from scratch, or even eaten a homemade pierogi, boy, you’re in for a treat. There’s no yeast in the dough, so it’s incredibly forgiving—much easier than making homemade pizza dough, even!—and after making more than 2000 individual pierogies during book recipe testing, I firmly believe that pierogies are the perfect freezable make-ahead food. Think tortellini, but way cooler. Think toaster pastries, but healthier. Think late-night dessert, think after-school snacks, think quick lunches or dinners, just think pierogies whenever you can.
(And did I mention there are Reuben pierogies? There are Reuben pierogies. Their existence alone makes my day.)
I can’t wait, and you probably can’t wait either. So if you want to pre-order Pierogi Love and get it as soon as copies start shipping out nationwide, I’ll give you a little something to tide you over. Believe me, If I could send piping hot pierogies to your doorstep, I would—but in the interest of food safety and my sanity, here’s the next best thing:
A FREE Pierogi Love eBook!
As a thank-you for pre-ordering Pierogi Love, I’ll send you a FREE eBook containing a sneak peek of 4 recipes from the book as well as 2 bonus recipes I created especially for you. You won’t get them anywhere else—not in Pierogi Love, not on this website—and they’ll definitely help get your imagination going on what else you can stuff inside a pierogi.
