Pittsburgh Food Experiments Dumpling Tour

We have been invited by the Food Experiment Tour to participate in their Pittsburgh stop which focuses on dumplings!  They invite local chefs to conceptualize a unique form of dumpling including pierogies of course, and ravioli, Asian, etc.  We are very excited to have been contacted by the tour and are trying to narrow down about 20 ideas right now to try a few this weekend and finalize our choice!  All participants will be eligible for prizes including the grand prize of a trip to the Brooklyn Brewery for the national cookoff.  Please come support us on Sunday May 20th from 2-5 pm at Mr. Smalls in Millvale!  We will follow up with a post of our entry and the event itself.

We have decided to go with Lobster Mac n Cheese Pierogies for our entry!  See the Bacon, Lobster Mac n’ Cheese Pierogies Post!
