Keeping It In The Family
Calgary Herald (Friday, January 14, 2011)
When her parents wanted to retire, Kathy Batorowska stepped into the breach,
assuming control of Heritage Bakery and Deli and its legion of loyal customers.
By John Gilchrist, Calgary Herald
I went to Heritage Bakery and Deli last Friday morning and bought some sausage to take to my parents' house for Christmas Eve. My father is Ukrainian (his father came from Ukraine) and my mom makes a lot of the food. Before moving to High River, my parents lived in a small Ukrainian village in Manitoba. They always bought their sausage from the local grocery store which had (and still has) the reputation of having the best sausage around. When I would go home to visit my parents, or when they would come visit me, we were always getting sausage to take to Calgary.
Since my parents moved to High River 3 years ago, my sausage connection was gone and I've been trying to find good sausage here in Calgary ever since. My search is over. Walking into that deli was like walking into my Baba's kitchen back in Manitoba. The sausage was still hot when they packaged it up for me. Of course, I had to try it as soon as I got home. It was, by far, the best sausage I ever had. I did not mention any of this to my parents, as I wanted to get their honest opinion. Well, they tried it and could not get enough of it. They both said it was even better then the sausage they used to buy in Manitoba. That's quite a compliment coming from my family! I am already planning my next purchase for Ukrainian Christmas.
