Mike Kotz grew up eating his grandmother’s pierogies, these golden brown pockets of potato a staple of childhood dinners. Sadly, when his grandmother passed, he had trouble finding quality pierogies in the Grand Rapids, MI area. So, Mike and his wife began attempting his grandmother’s recipes in their own kitchen. Whether it can be attributed to genetics or sheer tenacity, Mike soon discovered he had a knack for hand-crafting these Polish classics. He decided to share his gift with the mitten by going pro with Lost Village Pierogi.
