Tłusty Czwartek (Fat Thursday) Comes To Roncesvalles

An annual Polish tradition, Fat Thursday is the last hurrah before the fasting perios of Lent. Traditionally, celebrants feast on Fat Thursday, particularly on the popular (and really tasty!) Polish “donut” called pączki (pronounced POONCH-kee) and faworki (“angel wing” pastry.)

What a better day to try out something tasty! Tłusty Czwartek is big on Roncesvalles. You can expect brisk business at our Polish delis and bakeries, in particular the ever-popular bakery and cafĂ©, Granowska’s (175 Roncesvalles at Fern.)
