Seattle’s Iconic Piroshky Piroshky Bakery is Hosting a Cincinnati Pop-Up in August | Food News | Cincinnati
One of Seattle’s most popular bakeries is coming to Cincinnati, but only for one day.
Piroshky Piroshky celebrates its 30th anniversary of Eastern European-style baking with a road trip across America. And it calls at Rhinegeist on August 16th.
Opened in 1992 in Seattle’s Pike Place Market by owner Olga Sagan, the bakery specializes in the titular piroshky — what its website describes as “hand pies.”
Sagan wanted to bring a taste of Russia to the Pacific Northwest, according to the website, and his piroshkies are “individually crafted from scratch and hand-molded into their own unique shapes.” Fillings range from sweet to savory, with popular options like potato and cheese, smoked salmon pâté, and chocolate hazelnut cream.
The pastries have been widely praised, with outlets like the Smithsonian calling the bakery one of 20 Most Iconic Foodie Destinations Across America and TV shows, including The Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain list: no reservations to visit.
The Piroshky Piroshky Tour will also stop at Eudora Brewing Co. in Dayton, Ohio on August 17 before heading to Washington, Utah and California.
