Sausalito, CA (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Polska Foods®, a Saratoga-based pierogi manufacturing company, today announced that its full line of pierogi will now be for sale at Mollie Stones Markets. Since 1985, Mollie Stones has been dedicated to carrying specialty foods that are natural and organic. They focus on local producers around the greater Bay Area to bring high quality products in every aisle of their nine stores. Offering Polska Foods' pierogi is a perfect fit that supports Mollie Stone's corporate mission and organic product offerings.
Polska Foods is proud to announce its relationship with Mollie Stones, since they have a wide offering of ethnic foods and focus on quality products for their customers. Polska Foods mirrors their focus on quality -- they took a year of research to test each and every ingredient for their pierogi products. They found a local, family-owned artisan cheese company that still makes hand-crafted farmer's cheese out of Berkeley. They also get all organic grain and flour from one of the only mills left in the San Francisco Bay Area. This was the minimum required to truly duplicate their grandma's recipes from Poland.
"Making authentic, healthy pierogi like my babcia made was a main priority for us when we started Polska Foods," said Tomasz Piszczek, founder and VP of Operations. "Using local, organic, high quality ingredients not only makes the product taste better and have a higher nutrient value, but it reduces the product's carbon footprint. We are happy to offer a superior product that supports the small, local farmers who focus on organic, non-GMO vegetables and grains."
The company currently sells four pierogi flavors: Potato & Farmer's Cheese pierogi made with organic whole wheat or white dough, Mushroom & Cabbage pierogi with sauerkraut and caraway seeds, and Spinach & Feta pierogi in an organic whole wheat dough. Each product took a year of research to find the local, organic farmers they could trust and then to test the recipe with each final ingredient. Keeping to the homemade recipes from Tomek's grandmother in Poland, they found artisan farmer's cheese for their potato cheese pierogi and real sauerkraut without added vinegar for their cabbage pierogi. The only change to the original recipes were a few seasoning and spices to provide that true "California Fusion" flavor that makes California restaurants some of the best in the world.
