Pierogi is Poland's national dish and enjoyed year around by all ages. As stated earlier, pierogi have been made in Poland since the 13th century. However, claims have been staked by the Poles, Romanians, Russians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, and Slovaks. Some suggest that the original form came from China through Italy during the Marco Polo expeditions. Others suggest that the Tartars brought the recipe to the West from the former Russian Empire. Although nothing is confirmed, one thing we do know is that the word pierogi first appeared in Polish cookbooks and literature in the second half of the 17th century.
