ANGOLA, NY )WKBW-TV) — Nathan Hawes learned Pierogi making from his grandmother. When he opened his Angola restaurant a few years ago it was a natural for him to call it Gram's Pierogi House.
When Nate's daughter Stella was four, the two decided to take the plunge into the Pierogi business. They called it "Stella's Old Fashioned Pierogi's".
The pierogis are made by hand, using mostly locally grown products. Nate says "we usually make about two-hundred and fifty dozen. It takes ten people about nine hours."
Before COVID, Nathan had pierogi booths set up on either side of the stadium during Bills games. Now you can find him at the North Tonawanda Farmer's Market every Saturday.
You can pick-up frozen packs or hot of the grill at the restaurant. His latest creation is the "Josh Allen Pierogi" which is "honey, butter, Cajun, bar-b-cue".
Gram's Pierogi House is at 22 South Main Street in Angola.
