This year, the wondering statue of St. Jack with Pierogi awarded by the professionals received Krakow’s restaurant “Sekret Smaku”, which made the winning pierogi with duck and morels. This was their second time at the festival so, they were very happy to win.

Restaurant “Polskie Smaki” which prepared St. Martha’s pierogi with cherry wood smoked meat and herbs such as: garlic, cilantro and thyme among other spices, was awarded first place by the public and received the wondering statue of King Casimir the Great. This has been their fifth award at the Pierogi Festival and they have been participating for the past eight years.
