CINCINNATI — Dozens of chefs from across the queen city are teaming up to help the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.
A pierogi is a traditional Ukrainian dish and is usually a made-from-scratch dumping filled with potatoes and cheese. Pierogies can be boiled or fried.
Suzy DeYoung, founder of La Soupe, is spearheading the event with her chef friends in the community. DeYoung said she feels a deep, personal connection to the crisis in Ukraine.
"My father was a World War II resistance fighter,” she said. “He was captured by the Germans at 15-years-old, escaped and joined the resistance at 16. So watching what's happening there on a personal level, for our family, especially, we feel it, we know it.”
The event runs 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the OTR Stillhouse on Central Parkway.
Tickets are $100 and include pierogis, beer and wine. People can also stop by and grab some pierogis to go. They are $20 a dozen.
