I would like to take this time to tell you about my journey as a pierogi maker. It began even before my time. It began with my parents, Peter and Tanya. My father and mother were immigrants, born and raised in Ukraine. Shortly after marriage, they began to venture out into the world of entrepreneurial endeavors. Despite unfavorable circumstances, they opened a small baking business making European wafers. Upon immigrating to the United States, the land of opportunity, my mother continued to evolve her cooking skills. My mother began to cater various events, parties and weddings. She always had a wide assortment of dishes she created, each one of them unique, beautiful and delicious.
