One thing we really appreciated about volunteering with All Hands Volunteers, was the diversity. People had come from all over the world to work together to improve the lives of those affected by the April 2016 earthquake in Ecuador.
Food was supplied on our work days but come Sunday, we all had to fend for ourselves. On one of those Sundays we all got together to create pierogis, a Polish dish served on special occasions but good enough to eat whenever the bloody hell you want too!
For the dough;
3 cups of flour
½ cup water
Pinch of salt
Smidge of butter
About the Chef:
Roza is 22 years old and from Poland. She came to Ecuador to the try the project after having already worked with All Hands Volunteers in Detroit and the Philippines.
Roza tells me that the purpose of pierogis is not the taste, but the social time in making them with family and loved ones who come together during special occasions such as Chritmas to make them.
“Every pierogi is different, just like every family member”
