St. Pete Bowls, The Pierogi Bar, and Adieu Glu are three new cottage kitchen concepts in St. Petersburg providing tasty treats in a contactless fashion to local residents.
What is a cottage kitchen?
A cottage kitchen is a business that produces or packages cottage food products in a residential kitchen.
These three locally-owned, St. Petersburg businesses redefine what it means to work from home. From fresh cut, organic fruit platters, to exquisite gluten-free breads, these are three cottage kitchens operating in the Sunshine City you should have tried by now.
St. Pete Bowls, Anja Adams & Naomi Renee
St. Pete Bowls is a brand new locally-owned business delivering artfully arranged organic fruit spreads to your door. The mother-daughter team of Ajna Adams and Naomi Renee co-founded St. Pete Bowls at the outset of the pandemic, and since have become an acclaimed part of the Sunshine City. Their artfully arranged fruit platters infuse the Sunshine City with the kind of local nutrients residents crave.
These organic fruit platters are totally customizable. You can begin your order direct on St. Pete Bowls’ website. Some of the available organic fruits include Blackberries and/or Blueberries; Grapes – green and/or red; Kiwi; Oranges; and Strawberries.
There are several drop off options — and a physical pick-up site should launch this weekend. Visit St. Pete Bowls website to place your order.
Follow St. Pete Bowls on Instagram for updates on new offerings, and delicious menu teasers.
Adieu Glu, Deb Cooper
Adieu Glu is a brand new and incredible cottage kitchen in sunny St. Pete. Owner Deb Cooper is serving up 100% gluten-free baguettes, bagels, cupcakes, and great cookies.
The dedicated gluten-free concept operates directly out of owner and baker Deb Cooper’s kitchen. Cooper was diagnosed with celiacs back in 2004 and stopped eating bread for 12 years.
Adieu Glu officially launched back in January of this year. For those with celiacs, or are adhering to a gluten-free diet, the concept is a must try, and Cooper delivers direct to your door.
The chocolate chip cookies are giant and so so so good. But the sourdough baguette is a must try for anyone in the Sunshine City. Everything is made fresh. Treat yourself to a cupcake while you’re at it, the frosting makes it look like an actual flower.
On a business trip to Paris in 2016, Cooper discovered a gluten-free bakery and realized THIS is what she wanted to pursue: providing great tasting, gluten-free bread to others like herself who had difficulty filling the void left by dietary restrictions.
This is the epitome of passion projects and the perfect way to treat yourself right now.
Pierogi Bar, Daryna Voloshyn
The Pierogi Bar offers homemade authentic Ukranian Pierogis, and WOW does owner Daryna Voloshyn deliver something special.
There are myriad options to choose from. A personal favorite is the mushroom and sauerkraut pierogi. A sweet cottage cheese dessert pierogi has also captured my attention.
You can opt to add toppings like sour cream, bacon, and caramelized onions to your order.
Gluten-free options are available, too.
