Potstickers vs. Pierogies
Posted in the Food Forum
#1 Dec 3, 2012
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?
