This summer, Mrs. T’s Pierogies, the nation’s largest producer of frozen pierogies, has partnered with renowned restaurateur and Iron Chef America star, Chef Jose Garces.
Chef Garces, with deep roots in Philadephia, teamed up with Pennsylvania-favorite, Mrs. T’s Pierogies to create four restaurant-inspired recipes that put a creative spin on his favorite classic recipes and showcase the versatility of the product: Pierogies Poblanos, Szechuan-Style Pierogies, Pierogies Piccata and Chicken-Fried Pierogies. This summer, Chef Garces introduced the Chicken-Fried Pierogies to the menu at two of his locations in Philadelphia:
