The Food

I apologize if you have come to Perogies & Gyoza looking for recipes for Perogies and/or Gyoza!

I am not much of a cook so you won't find original recipes on this page, but here are some links I recommend.

The recipe I always use (plus a lot of cheese filling) is from Smitten Kitchen- her perogies use the lovely shortcut of gyoza wrappers, so easy and available in Japan to boot!

If you are in Canada or the northern part of the US you should be able to buy Cheemo Perogies.  These are The.Best.  Hands down. They even have whole wheat ones if you want healthy perogies. Slather those bad boys with sour cream and then email me photos because I want to live vicariously through you.

I don't make gyoza, I buy them. I like the ones with lots and lots of nira. Osho makes some decent ones too- they're a famous gyoza chain restaurant but recently have both regular gyoza and soup gyoza in the frozen food sections of grocery stores. The best way to eat them is in Cock Soup with long onions, thin carrots, and a dash of sesame oil.

Bon Appetit!


  1. I fell in love with perogies when we were in Canada a few years ago, at a farmer's market. And when we lived in .China, dumplings of all kinds gladdened my life! So I am as much into morsel-munching as I am into kid lit!

  2. I actually found your blog while looking for classroom ideas, but I love the title. I have lived in Okinawa, and was a Russian linguist in the Army, so I love both foods, too! Good luck, and keep reading!

  3. LOL...actually, I came because your blog came up when searching for picture books about Perogies..... trying to find out if there are any out there. Do you happen to know of any?

    1. Sadly I don't know of any. Now that's one we need!
