The Pierogi Lady

The Pierogi Lady One of the reasons I started The Pierogi Lady was because I just could not find good frozen pierogi. I would make mine from family recipes for my friends, and they encouraged me to start my business so I could share them with everyone.

Growing up in a small town, Sundays meant a day spent at Grams sharing good food with family – which always included a helping of her pierogi. I’ve carried on this tradition of making the perfect pierogi, using her recipes for you and your family to enjoy.

Our pierogi are all handmade, just like Grams, and we’re always trying different fillings. The more we experiment, the more we realize the possibilities are endless.

So be adventurous and search for your favorite. I know you are going to love our pierogi!

Olde World Foods

Old World FoodsOld World Foods was founded in 1994 with just a single frying pan and hand grinder to create our delicious potato pancakes. The world kept asking for more and more of these treats so we moved the operation to a factory in the Slavic Village area of Cleveland Ohio.

Over the years, Old World Foods has perfected and added additional products, including pierogi and drop dumplings. In 2013 we decided to include additional family members to assist the growth of the company. We continue the successful branding of our existing product line and the launch of the additional product lines, assuring that Old World Foods will continue to exceed customer expectations for years to come.

Fire & Ice

Fire & Ice Brick Oven Pizza & Sorbets Our pizzas are cooked in a custom built wood fired oven at temperatures between 700 and 900 degrees. All pizzas are cooked onsite using all fresh, natural, local ingredients whenever possible.

Like our pizzas, Italian style gelato & sorbets are made with the freshest ingredients possible. Those strawberries in the strawberry-banana gelato could very well have been ripening in the field only days earlier.

In addition our gelato contains less fat than ice cream so it doesn’t coat your mouth in the same way, allowing for more intense flavors.

Gelato is also churned at a slower speed than ice cream providing a more dense and flavorful product. Some ice cream contains up to 50% air while gelato contains about half that.

Gelato & Sorbets are also served at a slightly higher temperature than ice cream. You may have noticed this same effect with beer & wine. Beer & wine served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cold out of the refrigerator allows for more intense flavor.
