Many people celebrate Fat Tuesday with King Cake but on Tuesday February 9th Gilbert’s Liberty Market is celebrating with the Polish favorite, Paczki a jelly filled fried pastry. This sweet treat has it’s own parade every year in Hamtramck Michigan and has people lined up outside bakeries around Detroit to get their Paczki on.
Liberty Market’s pastry chef LaDawn Driscoll will be up early on the 9th to prepare dozens of Paczki’s and LM is taking pre-orders for a dozen or more for customers to pick up; the deadline for pre-orders is Sunday night February 7th. They’re offering a choice of three fillings: chocolate cream, vanilla bean custard, or raspberry jam. Smaller orders will be taken first-come, first-served in person at the restaurant after 7:00am on Tuesday February 9th, while supplies last. Paczki are $3 each or $33 per dozen. To order call Liberty Market at (480) 892-1900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
