Polish Pierogi – Full
January 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us and learn how to make this delectable Polish dumpling from Justyna Miranda, who will share the old fashion methods and secrets she learned growing up in Poland. Justyna will first demonstrate the process of making the dough before you step into the training kitchen for hands-on experience filling the dough and shaping them into pierogis.
These pierogis will be made with potato, bacon and cheese – in line with the traditional sweet or savory, seasonal filling. Participants will enjoy lots of sampling during class and recipes will be provided.
Registration is $25 and all proceeds support Convivium’s outreach efforts that provide access and education to children and families struggling with food access. PURCHASE TICKETS HERE.
Instructor Bio: Justyna Miranda is the owner and operator of City Girl Farming, an organic farm and a brand with a mission of reconnecting food and people. Originally from Poland, Justyna moved to Chicago where she had spent 15 years perusing a career in restaurant management. In 2017, her career shifted when she moved to Dubuque, IA. She began volunteering as a kitchen garden manager for Four Mounds Inn., reconnecting with the values she grew up with – an appreciation for land, local food and working in harmony with nature. Her brand is a direct result of that shift. Since then, she partnered up with local Chef and Brazen restaurant owner, Kevin Scharpf. In addition to growing produce for Brazen, she spent a year working on Kevin’s team, honing her skills and experiencing the full circle of her food production. This experience inspired a new project, in collaboration with Convivium Urban, Justyna manages HomeFresh – a healthy, local, fully prepared meal service which is now available in our community.
