When I tell people my last name, which is Baltrush, I'm usually met with 'Huh? What was that again?". I know it's unusual, it's Eastern European. I'm a Polish/Italian mutt from Waterbury. Growing up eating both Italian and Polish cuisine is where I earned my nickname Large Dave. Each cuisine has their own special cheese-stuffed pasta, and one of the staples of Polish cuisine is the Pierogi. Basically, it's a boiled or fried dumpling, stuffed with any sort of veggies, cheeses, and meat that you'd like. I've mostly found pierogies at street fairs in New Britain, The Big E, and in the freezer section of grocery stores. But I came across some exciting news today in my Facebook feed.
