This single-theme "book" is more a pamphlet. You will find as many pierogi recipes in your go-to Polish cookbook as here. I should have known better than to buy it the moment I saw the author add an "es" to pierogi to make it plural.... In a word, this pamphlet is insultingly "amateurish".The tips are very basic and over-simplified, making them fairly useless.There are only four dough recipes included, one of which is a basic noodle dough. The "original" dough recipe contains oil, not butter, so I'm not sure who this recipe is "original" to.There are 12 filling recipes, and they are so lacking in description and detail as to be annoying rather than valuable. Gourmet, they are not.Pass this one by or else you might very well feel that you were taken advantage of.....And if you really want to learn about pierogi, check out these cookbooks: Polish Cookbook by the Culinary Arts Institute, Polish Heritage Cookery by Robert Strybel and his wife Majka, or Strybel's smaller book Polish Holiday Cookery, or New Polish Cuisine, with at least one authentic dough recipe adapted for your food processor.
I am sooo glad that I read this book. I saw pierogies being made about a month ago on the cooking channel so I thought there was only one way to make them. This book really goes into intricate detail about the different way to prepare pierogies as well as different methods. The book even gives you an "out" at the end, if you don't like preparing individual pierogies. Needless to say I will be trying at least one of these recipes this weekend when my daughter and I cook our Mommy-Daughter dinner. This makes an excellent addition to anyone's cooking library!
I haven't made pierogies in probably 5-10 years and even then I only made them a couple times under the direction of someone else showing me how. I received this book as a gift and it is a great review of how to create various types of pierogies including my favorite potato and cheese ones. The directions and recipes are very easy to understand and follow. I'm heading off to the grocery store now to pick up the ingredients I need to make my own homemade pierogi
I have to admit that I've never cooked pierogies before so I didn't know what to expect from this book. However, I learned a lot! And I was pleased to find that there are many vegetarian options to choose from as well. Now I'm armed and ready to make some great tasting pierogies!
Summer Sundays in the town I spent most of my teenage years in always meant afternoons spent by the river at the Polish Club's picnic grounds. Live polka bands and lots of food ruled the day - and there were always pierogies! If you've never had pierogies, they are a real treat and Kathy Gary makes them easy in Passionate About Pierogies: Delicious Homemade Pierogi Recipes (Easy Ethnic Dishes).Complete with an interactive Table of Contents that correctly interfaces with the Kindle Navigation Menu (I would add one star but I can't give 6 of them!) Passionate About Pierogies: Delicious Homemade Pierogi Recipes (Easy Ethnic Dishes) is also available in paper for those who prefer that format, you'll find four different recipes for pierogi dough, a dozen different fillings both savory and sweet, complete directions for putting everything together and a couple of recipes for Pierogi Casserole. (The Homemade Pierogi Casserole is on my menu the very second I can get somebody to bring home some lasagne noodles or figure out where my son-in-law stashed the pasta maker! I even have a nice pork roast in the freezer to go with!)Kudos for a job extremely well done Kathy! Thanks for sharing your expertise!Highly recommended
I love to cook and I pride myself on creating lesser known dishes from all ethnic backgrounds. Its strange that pierogies never made it into my list of "must try's". Well, I imagine that has now changed and, with the help of this little book, I'll be turning out pierogies on occasion...like tomorrow for lunch. The recipes are clear, concise and easy to follow and the "tips" look helpful so with this new book in my kindle, I've just added another wonderful food type and style to tantalize my tastebuds.
This is a disappointing book, actually a pamphlet. There are only four dough recipes and twelve filling recipes using up 39 pages with plenty of white space. The recipes themselves are bland and simplistic. I also do not understand how a cookbook about pierogi only has one fruit filling, prune. Where are the recipes for fresh plum, cherry and strawberry fillings? The production values are terrible. It looks like an elementary school students first attempt at using power point, actually I may be doing the elementary student a disservice here. This book is not worth the paper it is printed on. Do not waste your money.
While everybody brags about Pierogies including me, I never made them because I don't know how. I saw this book and ordered it hoping it would help me to learn how to make them. It's by Kathy Gary and I must say there are so, so many recipes for Pierogies in this book. There is easy to understand instructions and pictures. I have had this book a while now and have perfected my Pierogie making skills.
