Lost Village Pierogi's … everything

By Lynda Wheatley | March 20, 2021

Before you drive off to spring break destinations unknown, drive first through The Great Northern Michigan Pierogi & Polish Food Pop-up Drive-Thru Festival, to be held Sunday, March 28, in Traverse City. Only the third time the Petoskey-based pierogi- and Polish-food-maker has brought its artisan wares to TC, the upcoming event will also be the last in Grand Traverse until fall. Translation? Pre-order now (timeslots and inventory go fast!) to stock up on its 30 varieties of handmade savory and dessert pierogi. They come frozen in batches of six; all you have to do is buy ’em and fry ’em. Although the pierogis are filling enough on their own, you can round out your haul with a bevy of special sides — their rightfully award-winning dill pickle soup, fat golabki (stuffed cabbage rolls), kapusta (fried cabbage and sweet onion, smoked and grilled kielbasa, four varieties of potato pancakes, and much more — just like Babcia used to make. Pre-order at www.lostvillagepierogi.com and pick-up (without ever leaving your car) at Cherryland Center Plaza, 144 W. South Airport Rd., in Traverse City.
