P&Co Pierogi is a shining example of what did not know we had been missing before the boom. Ola Farrar, and her husband, Jonathan, have been selling half-moon shaped Pierogi dumplings at Marlay Park Market, on Saturdays, for a number of months now, and are also at the monthly Terenure Market (First and Third Sunday of the month).
These deceptively simple water and flour dumplings can be filled with everything from Sauerkraut, Mushrooms and Caramelised Onions or Curd Cheese and Potato (the most traditional kind) to Black Pudding and Apple or Pulled Beef in Gravy (with a horseradish dip).
The P&Co pierogi may appear simple, but the definition and execution of each pierogi is dauntingly exact: Ms Farrar is a superb cook, so not only is the flavour of each filling precise and deft, but the handsome and uniform appearance of each little parcel is a joy to behold – the dumpling as art.
