Today is the 57th anniversary of the birth of David Duchovny, an American actor best known for his portrayal of Fox Mulder in The X-Files. Duchovny was born in New York City to Margaret “Meg” Miller and Amram “Ami” Duchovny. Duchovny’s paternal grandfather was a Jewish emigrant from Berdychiv, now in Ukraine, and Duchovny’s paternal grandmother was a Jewish emigrant from Russian Poland (now Poland).
In honor of Duchovny’s Polish ancestry, we give you this recipe for pierogies. Allrecipes tells us, “This recipe has been a family favorite passed on from generation to generation. We traditionally make these for Christmas, but they can be made for any special event. There’s some work involved, but the outcome is rewarding!”
