What is a Paczki?
Growing up on the Northwest Side of Chicago, there were hundreds of shops selling these remarkable treats the day before Ash Wednesday.
Paczki Day Is Back
Paczki Day is March 4 (or Fat Tuesday). Last year I wrote a blog about Paczki Day, and how I had such a hard time finding Paczkis (pronounced POONCH-key) in this area. This year, they are closer than I had imagined. The County Market at 24th and Spring in Quincy has Paczkis!
