One of Seattle's most popular bakeries is coming to Cincinnati — but only for one day.
Piroshky Piroshky is celebrating its 30th anniversary of slinging Eastern European-style pastries by taking a road trip across America. And it's making a stop at Rhinegeist on Aug. 16.
Opened in 1992 at Pike Place Market in Seattle by owner Olga Sagan, the bakery specializes in the titular piroshky — what its website describes as "hand-held pies."
Sagan wanted to bring a taste of Russia to the Pacific Northwest, according to the website, and her piroshkies are "individually made from scratch and hand-molded into their very own unique shapes." Fillings range from sweet to savory, with popular options including potato and cheese, smoked salmon pate and chocolate cream hazelnut.
The pastries have received widespread acclaim, with outlets like the Smithsonian calling the bakery one of the 20 most iconic food destinations across America and TV shows including The Zimmern List and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations paying a visit.
The Piroshky Piroshky tour is also stopping at Eudora Brewing Co. in Dayton, Ohio on Aug. 17 before heading to Washington, Utah and California.See a full menu and pre-order Piroshky Piroshky for either the Cincinnati or Dayton stop at piroshkybakery.com.
