In 2008, I attended the CCMAs in Winnipeg with my General Manager, who was originally from the Maritimes. We went for lunch where he had a club sandwich and I had perogies. When my order came, he looked at me with this puzzled look on his face and asked me “what are those?”
Not sure whether he was joking or not, I cautiously told them it was perogies.
His reply? “What are those? I’ve never heard of them”.
Mind blown people!! Who’s never heard of perogies.
They’re not everyone’s thing, but I’ve heard our very own Nevin can make a mean batch of them with his Baba’s recipe.
Lois called us and told us about the tradition of them in her family too!
