I've been rather quiet on the blog for the past three months as I've been working on a new project.

Earlier this month I launched my new street food business, Holy Pierogi.
Hailing as a modern interpretation of traditional Polish street food, the idea was influenced from my time spent studying abroad in Poland. It was there that I fell in love with not only Polish food, but also the warming culture that surrounds it. Holy Pierogi allows me to give old recipes a contemporary approach by adding my own twists and fusions to classic or authentic Polish recipes.

The menu is seasonal and is therefore different between events and between the months. I work with locally established suppliers to guarantee the best quality product where possible.

With pierogi being the central appeal, there are always at least two types of savoury or sweet pierogi's available to try. Current seasonal concoctions include beer braised beef cheeks in horseradish and honey roasted sweet potato with goats cheese and thyme.

Based in Leeds, I will be trading at street food events, markets and private functions in and around the city, but will be spreading to cities across the UK next year.

I'd like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has supported me and helped me to finally get my own business up and running. It has been hard work but I can see from the success of the first event and the feedback received that it has definitely been worth doing.
