Join BriarPatch Food Co-op and Gracie Schatz from your own kitchen during a virtual class where we learn the art of Pierogi making on Wednesday, April 21, from 6 to 8 pm.
Upon completion of the BriarPatch class, “Pierogi Party,” participants will understand the fundamentals of making delicious homemade pierogi.
Pierogi are filled dumplings made by wrapping unleavened dough around a savory or sweet filling and cooking in boiling water. They are often then pan-fried before serving. Pierogi are most often associated with the cuisine of Central and Eastern European nations.
This class is part of an ongoing 2021 series of online cooking and beverage classes. Co-op owners will receive $5 credit toward the purchase of class ingredients. An ingredient shopping list and recipes will be sent out one week before the class. A zoom link to the online class will be sent out the day before the class.
Gracie's cooking career began at the University of Oregon Urban Farm where she learned to grow and cook organic vegetables. Since then, she has been absorbed in all things delicious — from spending time in Italy learning to raise pigs, make cheese, wine and rustic Tuscan food to managing a butcher shop in her native San Francisco to interning at Food Love Farm in Nevada City.
She now resides in the Willamette Valley where she runs Heart of Willamette Cooking school. She hopes to not only connect the community to their food, but to empower a new generation of chefs, help people from all cultures preserve and share their flavors and traditions and provide a safe space where all people can come and feel nourished and inspired.
