5 Best Places to Eat and Drink This Week in Metro Phoenix

Liberty Market Tuesday, March 4

There are a lot of traditions that surround Fat Tuesday, but Gilbert's Liberty Market is celebrating one of the lesser known ones -- at least for most Southwestern folk. In Chicago, PÄ...czki Day is celebrated on Fat Tuesday with an annual PÄ...czki Day Parade and of course, by eating the traditional Polish pasty. A pÄ...czki looks a lot like a jelly doughnut but is made with special dough that includes eggs, fat, sugar, and sometimes milk. Liberty Market pastry chef LaDawn Driscoll will be baking three flavors -- raspberry, vanilla custard, and lemon -- and they will cost $3 each or $33 for a dozen. You can pre-order yours by calling 480-892-1900 or emailing [email protected]
