The team from Pierogi Pierogi is taking over The Gasometer Hotel's kitchen to ring in International Workers' Day the only way it can: with lots of pierogi. As purveyors of Melbourne's finest handmade Polish dumplings, the market regulars will embrace the revolutionary spirit with parcels filled with kapusta (mushroom and sauerkraut), ruskie (potato and cheese), mieso (beef and veggies) and banan (deep-fried banana and coconut flakes).
And pierogi isn't even all of it — hearty krupnik soup, pickled herring and goulash will be on offer too, as well as lots and lots of vodka. Best come with an empty stomach.
Pierogi Pierogi promises to "put a tasty dumpling-shaped spanner into the machinations of an oppressive flavourless state". Plus, in addition to the Polish cuisine, the night will feature Turkish disco from DJ Baba Noir and French gypsy punk from Cyclo Timik. It all goes down from 5pm until late on Sunday, April 29.
