Summertime, and the living is easy… especially when you’re situated on a west-facing patio with a cool mojito in your hand.

In many cultures, people fill flattened dough with delicious fillings. In Asia, there are dumplings. Italians love tortellini, ravioli and agnolotti. In Russia, there are pelmeni and in Georgia, khinkali. The most popular form on the Canadian Prairies is the perogy (pierogi, pirogi, varenyky), which came to Canada from Eastern Europe. If you don’t have a baba to make them for you, here are a few places you can find perogies.
