Potstickers vs. Pierogies

Potstickers, also known as Jiaozies are a hot Chinese treat that typically consist of a ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped into a thinly rolled piece of dough, which is then sealed by pressing the edges together or by crimping. Potstickers/Jiaozies should not be confused with wontons (source: Wikipedia).

Nor should they be confused with Chinese wontons.

Pierogies are hot Polish dumplings of unleavened dough first boiled, then they are baked or fried usually in butter with onions traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit (source: Wikipedia).

The growing populist popularity of Chinese and Polish (and other European) foods is making the offbeat tasty Potstickers-Pierogies rivalry an intriguing multi-cultural battle of simple condiment/ornamental dough-fry foods and is reflecting the festive marketability of yummy food-culture Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Soul Food" (1997).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
