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!
