Pierogi chefs needed for March 7

February 27, 2012

Pierogi at Food Faire is as much a Mustang Lacrosse ritual as a Rose Bowl trip or Sticks & Stones!

We’re looking for parent “chef” volunteers to purchase and cook pierogi and bring them to school for the Faire where we represent Poland!

  • When? Food Faire is Wednesday, March 7 on THHS Upper Field.
  • What? You can buy and cook them for Food Faire. We found some in the freezer aisle at many supermarkets! You can also simply donate $12 to help defray the pierogi costs for others. Or you can volunteer to cook donated pierogi.
  • Why? For school spirit — and the team profits by sharing proceeds of food sales with ASB.
  • What? We need to provide at least 500 pierogi for the Faire. We figure each volunteer can handle 4 dozen. (It’s a donation to the team that sells pierogi to THHS students during the Food Faire lunch!)
  • How? Boil them night before, place them in Ziploc-like container in refrigerator overnight. Fry them in butter until golden brown on Food Faire morning and wrap them in foil. Have player drop them after 6:45 am on March 7 and the dance room near the tennis courts.
  • Who? To volunteer, just click here to sign up … password at or use contact form below to reach the Mustang Pierogi Committee! (we’d also love to have parents come to the event to help the girls serve the masses. It’s a pretty wild hour or so!

  • Spelled — depending on ethnicity — perogi, perogie, pierogi, perogy, pirohi, piroghi, pirogi, pirogen, pierogy, pirohy, pyrohy.
  • Fillings? Mashed potatoes and cheese, cabbage, sauerkraut, peppers, ham, beef or mushrooms plus for the sweet tooth: cherry, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, peach, plum, apple or prunes.
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates actually host “The Great Pierogi Race” between innings featuring four costumed, over-sized pierogi!
  • If you’re crazy enough to make ’em — here’s a recipe for Potato and Jalapeno Pepper Pierogi from Pierogies Plus in Pittsburgh!
