Default Kolsches-My Favorite Food Snack

I grew up with 'em in Minnesota. My grandmother (on my dad's side) was an excellent cook and baker and cooked for a restaurant. She made kolaches by hand. As a kid I hated the prunes she filled them with, so I ate the pastry all around them!

I asked the Manager of my local supermarket if he could stock them and he said he had no idea what I was talking about .

I have not heard of kolaches before. I find a website Orders
Looks like they deliver it could be your solution.

I agree with TM's wife I like Pasteis de Nata (Custard Tarts). I moved away from San Jose CA so I can't get them anymore. We really need a Portuguese bakery over here. I did find an easy recipe so I think I will make them this weekend. Portuguese Custard Tarts by Bill Granger @Not Quite Nigella Just look at these tasty treats.

You are lucky New England has a large Portuguese community. They should have the custard tarts. They are only custard favored, but they are tasty. Other things in the bakery.

  • Filhos (Sugar Doughnuts)
  • Malacadas (Sugar Doughnuts) (I have a special family recipe for these doughnuts)
  • Lemon Biscoitos (Cookies)
  • Chocolate Biscoitos (Cookies)
  • Sweet Bread
  • Quejadas (these I haven't tried but they look tasty see picture below)
  • Papo'secos (White Bread Rolls)

I had never heard of Kolaches before I recently read a book about a woman who grew up in her grandparents bakery (they were Polish) and her grandmother made kolaches. The story was set in a little town in NY state, up near the Catskills.
The book even included recipes for many of the tasty treats made in the bakery.

You have Gaspar's sausage company over that it look like a great place to get Linguica and Chourico. It's in North Dartmouth, MA.. They have ground linguica, linguica patties (which I love), The bite size linguica (make a great pig in blank)et, and Tukery linguica (which is hard to find). Plus this have recipes on the website. This Turnovers recipe is a keeper. Portuguese people like to be near the Ocean where the good seafood is.:-D There are a lot of Portuguese in California also there is an area in San Jose CA called little Portugal. If you cruise out of San Pedro CA the shops there are at Port's O' Call Marketplace.

Oh I thought of something Pasteis de Nata (Custard Tarts) are traditional at Christmas and Filhos and Malacadas (Sugar Doughnuts) are traditional on the Fat Tuesday before lent. Like a king's cake is to New Orleans. Malacadas are yeast risen so they take hours to make and deep fry.

My kids grew up on these. They liked the one's with sausage in them. It was great for taking out the door on the way to school.

My Mom was Bohemian and Kolaches were standard on the farm where she grew up on near Antigo (Neva), Wisconsin. Kolaches are a fruit or poppy seed filled pastry. They are DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!! The Antigo Bakery, in Antigo, WI makes them fresh every day from a traditional recipe. OH SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Kolaches-My Favorite Food Snack

Kat, we'll be sailing out of San Pedro next Spring. But a drive down there isn't all that bad. I might take a look to see if their bakeries have any kolaches NOT stuffed with prunes!

Good Luck I have never heard of kolaches until this thread. I have no idea if you can found them in California. They sound tasty.
