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.
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.
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.
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.
