Pierogis — perhaps one of the crown jewels of all dumplings, somewhere between ravioli and gyoza, just below xiaolongbaos and empanadas. Who knew the Polish import — lightly fried until doughy and crisp with dollops of caramelized onions and sour cream — had such a natural accompaniment in ice cream?
The two local businesses (Jaju of Beverly and Gracie’s of Union Square in Somerville) will team up Saturday for an evening pop-up of pierogi and ice cream pairings. For $14, guests get four savory handmade pierogis and two special dessert pierogis (blueberry and s’mores) with a scoop of Gracie’s ice cream. (Kids get two and one, plus ice cream, for $10.) Jaju will be bringing a range of their savory flavors — including potato and cheese; cabbage and mushroom; sweet potato and caramelized onion; and kielbasa and red pepper.
