Mama's Spinach / Chard Pie is always so delicious. There can't be an easter time without it. That's not to say that it has to be limited to Easter only. So if you want a truly traditional recipe. Give this a go. I found that frying the spinach with the garlic and oil locks in the flavour and gives this an amazing oomph.
Discovering Polish dumplings has been a revelation! I have loved the fact that pierogis have so many variations, from savoury and soft to crunchy, creamy and believe it or not even sweet ones! WHAT! Yep I know, mind blown. The fantastic thing about these Eastern European treats is that once you make the dough and get the hang of shaping them all you need to do it is boil, sometimes fry and serve.
