PARMA, Ohio — Serving the Parma community for 65-plus years, Rudy's Strudel brings the Old world European taste to the Polish community, and what better way to celebrate National Pierogi Day than at this staple.

Lidia Trempe, the owner of Rudy’s Strudel, calls pierogi the unofficial food of Cleveland.

On the menu this weekend is the “Dawg Pound Chili Pierogi” to honor the Cleveland Browns.

"You won’t find this in Pittsburgh,” laughed Lidia Trempe, who jokingly calls herself the next best thing to her mother.

The "Dawg Pound Chili Pierogi," which combines everyone's favorite game day food with Cleveland's favorite potato-filled pillowy pockets, will be filled with homemade chili using local ingredients.

The celebration continues Saturday, Oct. 9 with a pierogi party to celebrate the national day and the one-year anniversary of the Current Year record store. The celebration will include a pierogi trivia festival, polka beats and more.
