Once in a while (though it seems like it’s happening way more often in Brantford recently!) a local business opens that has you thinking, “Where have you been all my life?!” Enter: Baba Zee’s Pierogies.
Gaining some steam back in September 2020, Baba Zee’s Pierogies makes homemade, locally sourced pierogi that rival your own babcia’s. They are easily twice the size of the boxed pierogis from the grocery store, and are filled with delicious flavour combinations like: Baba Style (potato and cheddar); Double Smoked Cheddar and Bacon; Beer and Rosemary Braised Caramelized Onion; and Jalapeno Popper.
Their ingredients are simple and wholesome, making them a delicious full meal or side that you can feel confident feeding your loved ones. The dough is a combination of flour, filtered water, egg, butter and salt, and the filling for their Beer and Rosemary Braised Caramelized Onion pierogi include russet potato, cheddar, white onion, IPA style beer, rosemary, sour cream, salt, pepper and onion salt.
Baba Zee’s Pierogies makes these heavenly potato bundles out of Our Kitchen Brantford, a local commercial, shared kitchen with a delicious storefront that sells kitchen members’ creations. Open Monday through Friday from 11am-5pm and Saturday from 11am-3pm, you can pick up your pierogi as well as other amazing local, handmade dishes, desserts and condiments all at Our Kitchen.
Whether keeping it simple with a quick boil and toss in melted butter, or pan frying up the sides and topping with fried onions, bacon, cheese, sour cream, sourkraut, or even sriracha, Baba Zee’s Pierogies are a must-try.
