Handmade: Pączki od Zagoździńskiego #9
They are commonly known as ‘the doughnuts from Górczewska Street’. They win contests for Warsaw’s best doughnuts (or pączki), and they are praised by customers and culinary critics alike. Despite the acclaim, their producers continue to handcraft only a limited number of them. Once the last doughnut is sold, they call it a day and close their shop at 15 Górczewska Street in Warsaw.
Sylwia Tomaszkiewicz, great-granddaughter of founder Władysław Zagoździński, says the family tradition goes back to 1925 and that it is likely to continue. Zagoździńki’s original recipe for doughnuts has never changed. Only natural ingredients are used: flour, sugar, margarine, milk, real eggs and… heart, as emphasized by Tomaszkiewicz. The doughnuts are hand-made at every stage of their production. The shop’s owners showed the whole process to the Culture.pl video team.
