I've never made pie crust but I saw my Mum do it thirty years ago. I can't remember anything about it other than it looking yellow. We will give it a go though!!!

Good luck. You're going to needed.
Thanks, we will eat well though! And to be honest Borscht sounds delicious!!!

We'll dedicate the Borscht episode to you Charlie D. I don't know anyone else from the Ukraine!

But the recipe looks fantastic so I really may just have to set a day aside to make them and record it. Brilliant link GotGarlic. I really want to make those curds!
Sorry, I got that recipe confused with one for fresh mozzarella. You could substitute fresh mozzarella for curds - it's practically the same thing. But you probably already have your ingredients.

If you ever want to make fresh mozzarella, though, here's a recipe: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make...-kitchn-174355

Welcome to DC, tipplej! I'm so glad you are taking us along on your eating adventure. Might inspire me to try some "exotic" dishes. The one piece of advice I can offer is something I learned that makes things run a bit more smoothly for me. Read your recipe several times before you start, measure out and line up all your ingredients, and double-check each measure to make sure it's what you need. (Lesson learned after one, very embarrassing pumpkin pie made with no sugar...the year after I admonished my Mom for forgetting the sugar.)

I come from Polish stock. I grew up eating both foods that have made it into the mainstream and foods that are decidedly old-world. For Polish foods you can't go wrong with a smoked sausage like kielbasa, served up along side a pile of pierogi sauteed in butter and onions. Every culture has pierogi, they just call them by different names: ravioli, pot stickers, etc. All variations of yummy, filled noodle dough. Pierogis aren't hard to do - I've done it once and wonder why I haven't made them since. If you're interested, I found a simple tutorial; links to the recipe variations are after the author's story.

How to Make Pierogi from Scratch

Or think "Hot Dog". Those wieners are served all over the country, but it seems like every region has their own style. This article from "Delish" offers up ten different variations. I found other sites, but this one seemed the easiest to navigate. Whatever you pick for the United States, have fun and enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome and support CG. Pierogi looks very interesting to try. I had the national dish of Poland down as "Bigos". Any idea what that is?

That was very helpful thanks!
We have made the poutine and filmed the escapade. All I need to do now is spend about 8 hours editing it!!!

I had a co-worker from Poland who made me some Bigos, it was the only time I ever enjoyed sauerkraut. It's a traditional Polish Hunter's Stew with Pork, Kielbasa and sauerkraut.
