Would you like to cook our signature dish for your family or friends?
To prepare the Brynzda Pirogues, you will need:


  • 500g all-purpose flour
  • 100g potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml water
  • 10g salt


  • 150g bryndza cheese
  • 200g potatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Butter, water and salt to taste


  • Bacon cubes, curd cheese, chives, and sour cream to taste



Boil the potatoes in their jackets and let them cool off. To make the dough, mix the flour, grated potatoes, lukewarm water, one egg and a pinch of salt. When done, leave the dough for a few minutes. While the dough rests, prepare the filling by mixing the bryndza cheese with the remaining grated potatoes. Divide the dough into two halves. You can roll it out easily. Cut the rolled-out dough using the tumbler or round cookie cutter. Put aside the remaining dough, and then roll it up and cut again. Form little filling balls and put one into each round piece of dough. Fold the dough in half and crimp the edges. Drop the formed and filled pirogues into the boiling water. As soon as they emerge on the water surface, cook them over a low heat for an additional five minutes. Remove the pirogues and pour melted butter over them. Serve with bacon cubes, curd cheese, chives and sour cream.
