WHITING | Pierogi Fest has received a lot of national and worldwide exposure thanks to Oprah Winfrey, the Travel Channel and CNN.
When Marty Dybel, Tom Dabertin, and Darlene Beerling were brainstorming ideas for a new community event 21 years ago, they all agreed upon two things: they wanted an ethnic festival, and they wanted it to stand out from the rest.
"Kung Pao Pierogies" use several different sauces to give this recipe an Asian influence.
This "Carbonara Pierogi" recipe uses cheese blended pierogies and tops them in bacon, parmesan cheese, and parsley for a truly Italian infused dish.
Inspired by traditional buffalo wings, this recipe combines the hearty flavor of pierogies with a "spicier" flare.
WHITING | A Saturday night fireworks display and a polka luau are just two of several changes or additions to the city's popular Pierogi Fest.
