(KTVI) - Did you know that pierogi is from a Polish word for "Festivity?"

You will learn and taste a lot more from the Polish Festival.    At the Polish Festival, we serve cheese-filled pierogi, though the Poles enjoy many flavors:  potato and cheese, sauerkraut and mushroom, apple and peach.

Kapusta

This is the Polish word for cabbage and we combine the many flavors  bacon, salt, pepper, secret ingredient (brown sugar), bay leaf.  Kapusta is served as an accompaniment for kielbasa or can be prepared more like a soup.

Kielbasi

Freshly made at Piekutowski`s Sausage store in north city, this is our Polish sausage which is a staple of Polish cuisine.  We serve the smoked variety, which comes with a side of rye bread, just like the Old Country.  Kielbasi represents good luck and prosperity.
