A FAMILY TRADITION

Sixty-five years ago, our Jaju started a Polish food business with his brothers and sisters in Western Massachusetts—hand-crafting pierogi, golabki, and kielbasa for their community. Fast forward to the ‘90s and you’d find us, Vanessa and Casey, spending our weekends cutting, stuffing, and sealing pierogi in the back kitchen alongside our elders.

Pierogi was a typical item on our dinner plates, something we took for granted. When we moved out to Boston for school and work, pierogi became more difficult to come by and we had to wait for deliveries from our mom. Friends talked of having to buy the mass-produced pierogi to get their fix! For us, that just wasn't okay. We would have to do something about it. In 2015, we dug out our grandfather's handwritten recipes and got to work making and perfecting traditional, handmade pierogi for Boston.


 


THE PIEROGI

Locally Made
Hand made on the North Shore of Boston and in farmers markets across the area, we love to source ingredients locally, partner with other small businesses, and get to know our community. 

 

Time-tested Process
Inherited from our Jaju, this traditional polish process is a labor of love. Everything from mashing potatoes to making and cutting the dough, we do from scratch with our hands.

 

Simple Ingredients
Featuring flavors like cabbage and mushroom, sweet potato, butternut squash, apple & sage, kielbasa, and potato and cheese, our pierogi use only a few straightforward ingredients.

COOKING YOUR PIEROGI

Defrost
If possible, place pierogi in the fridge for a few hours before cooking. 

 

Cook & crisp
Put your pierogi in a pan with butter or oil over low to medium heat. Cook through for 5-7 minutes, then slightly increase heat to crisp the dumplings.

 

Enjoy
Turn off the stove heat, plate with your favorite sides, and enjoy your home-made pierogi.


CATERING & SHIPPING

 

We cater! Pierogi go well with birthday parties, company happy hours, festivals and pop-ups, or simply a night of watching football with friends. We can cook at your event or drop off ready-to-heat pierogi. Contact us for pricing!
