Krakus Deli is owned by Renata Fedoryszak. Born in Lesko, in south-eastern Poland near the resort areas of the Bieszczady Mountains, Renata immigrated to the US at age 30. In 2006 she opened Krakus Deli in Phillipsburg to serve popular dishes from her homeland, including stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, strudel and other complicated to prepare dishes. Her restaurant offers eat-in and take-out service and draws customers from miles who long for homemade classics as well as to purchase imported Polish ingredients sold in the grocery section of her store. To further make these favorites available, Renata attends farmers markets in Riverdale, NY, Watchung, New Providence, Roseland, Morris Plains, Bernardsville, Scotch Plains and Brick, NJ.
She will offer pierogi samples this Saturday and Sunday at Villa Milagro Vineyards and will have pierogis available to purchase and take home. Wine sampling, a glass of wine to pair with the pierogis sampling and a gift glass to take home for $10.
