Happy Father’s Day! Dads always try to keep it together and be strong for everyone else in a normal year. Let’s face it, this past year has been anything but normal. Dads have been working overtime – figuratively and sometimes literally. They definitely deserve a day to be celebrated.

Perhaps a feast complete with Perfect Pierogies and his favourite toppings would be a hit! Find out where you can get some close to you here.

A cabbage roll is a dish consisting of steamed cabbage leaves wrapped around a variety of fillings. The inspiration for our recipe started from our grandmothers coming from Ukraine and Poland. The best rolls are prepared from locally grown cabbage at a particular time of the year. The filling is predominantly rice with prepared bacon, onion and a special blend of spices. The filling is rolled in the cabbage leaf, then baked with a homemade tomato sauce and butter.
