Metro Detroiters are indulging Paczki. How much fat is there in a paczek?
Outside of Michigan, few people even know what paczki are. But say the word in metro Detroit, and mouths start watering.
It’s an unofficial holiday for many in the metro Detroit area: Fat Tuesday, also known as Paczki Day.
Yesterday morning, I walked into this painted brick bakery with a friendly and inquisitive attitude. I needed to find out why I couldn’t find one article (other than yelp reviews) written about its history or paczki. I quickly found out why.
Fat Tuesday overflows with traditions that began centuries ago in Europe.
This Fat Tuesday, stop by one of the following restaurants and enjoy a paczki, a popular Polish doughnut.
The best paczki are the free ones in the office lunchroom, but if your co-workers aren’t coming through, visit New Deluxe, New Palace, Dutch Girl Donuts and a handful of other Detroit bakeries!
