Break out your apron and cook along with Chef Theresa from Jeremiah's Catering, as we explore favorite recipes from around the world.

This month we will celebrate the cuisine from Poland, learning how to make those yummy dumplings called perogies.

Like to cook? Join us for Chef Theresa's International Cuisine Series. Ingredient list will be posted a few weeks before each session.

Ingredients to have on hand:

DOUGH:
2 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour


FILLING:

1 large egg
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Dash pepper
1 carton (15 to 16 ounces) soft farmer cheese or whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 to 4 tablespoons butter, divided
Sour cream, optional


Directions
In a large bowl, make a well with the flour, crack eggs, water and salt until blended; stir in flour. Transfer to a lightly floured surface; knead 10-12 times, forming a firm dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes.
For filling, in a small bowl, whisk egg, salt, sugar and pepper. Stir in cheese.
Divide dough into 4 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion to 1/8-in. thickness; cut with a floured 4-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 tablespoon filling in center of each circle. Moisten edges with water; fold in half and press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. 
In a 6-qt. stockpot, bring water to a boil. Add pierogi in batches; reduce heat to a gentle simmer. Cook until pierogi float to the top and are tender, 2-3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add pierogi in batches; cook until golden brown, 1-3 minutes on each side, adding additional butter as necessary. If desired, serve with sour cream.

Equipment:
2 bowls
1 large pot
1 large frying pan
1spoon slotted and or colander
1 rolling pin
1 large 4 inch or so, round cookie cutter
