Warsaw, Poland – A Polish woman has just set a new Guinness World Record to become the fastest pierogi-maker in the world, reported the Polish Press Agency (PAP).
“Pierogi are my life”, 46-year-old Beata Jasek (pictured above), the new record-setter who has been making the Polish delicacy for the last 15 years in Krakow establishments, told local media.
One might be more than inclined to believe her, after having cooked exactly… 1,066 pierogi in only one hour – amounting to an incredible feat of one pierogi every 3.4 seconds.
She hands-down broke the previous record of 756 pieces under an hour.
The World Guinness Record-breaking took place during the Plum (a fruit often found in sweet pierogi) Festival, held every year in Iwkowa, Beata Jasek’s home-town in southern Poland some 70 km from Krakow, which coincidentally enough has been named European Capital of Gastronomy for the year 2019.
After being cooked, her 1,066 delicacies were than handed for free to delighted festival-goers.
