CORPUS CHRISTI COMPETES TO RECLAIM “PIEROGY POCKET” TITLE FOR BUFFALO
Church Invites Western New Yorkers to Join the Effort by Submitting Entries of Homemade Pierogi
Buffalo , New York – Corpus Christi Church is determined to reclaim Buffalo’s rightful title as “Capital of the Pierogy Pocket of America” in a highly publicized contest sponsored by Mrs. T’s Pierogies.
The Mrs. T’s competition stresses creativity and strong civic participation to demonstrate a community’s “pierogy pride/passion.” As part of what Corpus Christi expects to be a compelling contest application, the church invites the public to join in the challenge by submitting their best homemade pierogi for a taste test to be held on Saturday, August 23 at 5:30p.m. during the parish’s Polish Harvest Festival. Applicants will be judged in one of three categories: traditional (potato, cheese or sauerkraut), dessert and non-traditional recipes. The taste test is open to all amateur cooks. (No restaurants or commercial vendors please.) The winners in each category will receive the title of Buffalo ’s Best Homemade Pierogi Maker 2008 and a $50 gift certificate to the Broadway Market. Winners will be determined by a panel of local celebrity judges. Interested individuals must register in advance by calling the parish at 716/896-1050 or visiting the website at http://www.corpuschristibuffalo.org. All Western New Yorkers are also invited to sign a petition at the Polish Harvest Festival in support of Corpus Christi ’s bid on behalf of Buffalo for the honor of Capital of the Pierogy Pocket.
