Pierogi Pop-Up 

Side Dishes: Weekends go Polsku at Cobblestone Deli and Café

When Miranda Syp of Syp Brand Pierogi moved to Burlington from central Vermont last October, she sold her pierogi anywhere she could. “I was going around to construction workers and asking if they’d like to order some,” she recalls.

Things became more stable for Syp last weekend, when she served her first plates of dumplings at her new pop-up restaurant at Cobblestone Deli and Café in Burlington.

Syp first shared her Krakowian grandmother’s pierogi recipe with Vermonters when she worked at L.A.C.E. in Barre. In 2008, what started as a one-time dinner event turned into a business, with the help of the Central Vermont Community Action Council. Syp eventually began selling her dumplings at the Capital City Farmers Market and the Hunger Mountain Co-op.

But what she really wanted, she says, was to feed people freshly made pierogi dressed with onions, sauerkraut and sour cream, the way her grandmother did. Now Syp will do that at Cobblestone on the first and third weekends of every month.

“It’s like a farmers market booth, but inside,” says Syp, who makes her potato-cheddar pierogi from local cheese and spuds.

The “little pockets of love,” as she calls them, are available on Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. Look for the Syp Brand to pop up next on June 2 and 3.

What do you cook in early spring?

  • Lots of pasta, potatoes and other carb-heavy stuff.
  • Winter things: squash, root veggies, the like.
  • I embrace non-local produce and go all-in for mangoes, baby-green salads and avocado toast.
  • I'm all about the early-spring salad: endives, radicchio and other bitter greens with shaved roots and eggs!
  • All of the above!
