Silver Spoons: We Wish Michael Symon’s pierogies weren’t so delicious.

He was a worthy adversary to legendary Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. He’s bravely conquered Tremont, East Fourth Street, New York, even the Food Network. He’s even convinced us to eat ice cream with bacon in it — he’s our own mighty Michael Symon, and there’s nothing he can’t do. But did he have to do the pierogi?

“His beef cheek pierogi is out of sight,” says Dominic Cerino of Carrie Cerino’s.

But there lies the rub.
