It’s just about the most wonderful time of the year: Fat Tuesday and the excuse to eat the deliciously decadent Polish delicacy of paczki. Erica Pietrzyk of Pietrzyk Pierogi is Detroit’s queen of Polish cuisine, and she’s getting a head start on the holidays by hosting a pop-up brunch at Urbanrest Brewery. She can get the Polish dishes Pietrzyk is known for and, of course, paczki, available in raspberry, strawberry, jalapeño and vanilla custard flavors, as well as delicacies like Paczki Waffles. Pietrzyk tells us her waffles are a combination of her grandmother’s Belgian waffle mix and ground fried paczki pieces, topped with real maple syrup and raspberry preserves. Pietrzyk will also serve his Paczki Parfaits, filled with paczki pieces, vanilla custard and fruit. She considers this her Paczki Day warm-up.
