As tasty as August Saturday

There are seasons which have they "musts". For me August is essentially linked with cherries. And if cherries, then of course pierogi.


















Some argue that making them is a chore - I would say it's really worth some effort.


















Polish way of eating them is simple and unbeatable: loads of sour creme and powder suger...


















It's really hard not to lick the plate afterwards :)


















And to finish off - a decent portion of chocolate ice cream...

Totally unhealthy and fattening. And cherries are NOT in season in Poland in August, so where do you get the idea from? Cherries are a June/July thing, NOT August.
The food you present is perfect for heart attacks. Sorry but it is true!

Dear Anne,
I eat it every year till the end of August (maybe it's because I live in the north) and I'am absolutely healthy and very slim. I guess you are more likely to get heart attack by worrying about your food constantly :)

Poland has a very high rate of cardiovascular disease (as compared to western Europe). Smoking, the diet (animal fat, processed flour, sugar) and lack of exercise are contributors. The fact that you are slim (while young) does not negate it. Many Polish women who were slim when young are very fat and unfit later in life. This kind of eating and HUGE icecream portions contribute to this phenomenon. What do you think icecream is made of? Cream (animal fat) and processed sugar!

Cheers,
Anne

My introduction to food was through Polish cooking. I was raised in Chicago by Polish nannies and their food was all I ate for my first 10 years! I will never get over my love for stuffed cabbage! I then went on to become a foodie and nutritionist!

So, I love your blog-- it brings back sweet memories!!
