As Pierogies Plus's chefs filter into the kitchen early each morning, they peek at the vast pot of potatoes they left to boil overnight, making sure each spud is tender and ready to tuck inside their signature dumplings. The multigenerational kitchen staff?some of whom have been making pierogies for four, five, or seven decades?roll out rounds of dough and top them with sauerkraut, kielbasa, potatoes, and other fillings, following a special recipe espoused by Food Network chef Bobby Flay. Then chefs center each dollop of filling, hand pinch the pierogies into scallop-edged crescents until they cry uncle, and cook them until the dough turns golden. Pierogies Plus dishes out its eponymous treats and other Eastern European dishes both in its McKees Rocks storefront and in an online store, and caters special events, such as graduation parties and weddings.
The scent of freshly baked bread greets visitors as they enter Szmidt's Old World Deli, where cooks slow roast and brine meat in-house for high-stacked european sandwiches. Through the years, owner Darren Smith has experimented with reckless abandon in the kitchen, fine-tuning more than a dozen sandwich varieties and infrequently spilling mustard onto his lab coat. The signature Szmidt sandwich layers homemade pastrami with provolone cheese, caramelized onion, and crunchy dill pickles, while the Annie grilled cheese blends slices of cheddar, american, and provolone. The culinary master blends the new world with the old world as he fills the dough from his grandmother's pierogi recipe with buffalo chicken or melty chocolate-peanut-butter cups.
