The March-April issue is available in stores on March 1, compliments of Kowalski's!
The joy of good food starts with having good choices to pick from. At Kowalski's, we strive to offer the best selection in the Twin Cities in every single aisle and department. Our Meat & Seafood Department, for one, provides options for everyone: grass fed, local, organic, pasture raised, Waygu, Prime, sustainable, wild caught and farm raised. Each and every choice you can make is a good one, and all are choices you can feel good about.
Visiting our farmers and ranchers in their fields and on their farms is critical to making these choices possible. It allows us to see firsthand the conditions in which our food selections are grown, raised and harvested. In this issue of Kowalski's At Home, we continue our "Farm Field Trip" series with a visit to Nebraska and our new partners from Spring Lake Ranch, producers of our Signature 100% Organic Grass-Fed Beef program. You can read more about Spring Lake Ranch and these premium meat choices on page 11.
Our Produce Department also offers choices galore, even for something as simple (and delicious) as cabbage. On page 8, Culinary Director Rachael Perron explains the difference between some of the most popular types and helps us understand how to best use this wonderful winter vegetable.
We have an extensive selection in our Specialty Cheese Department, too. Cheeses made with every type of milk and from every corner of the globe are right at your fingertips. On page 9, we explore one of the most popular cheeses in the world: Cheddar. Be sure to watch for great pairing ideas and Cheddary recipes all season long on our social media pages!
Our Gift Department selection is always changing to suit the seasons, occasions and people we celebrate throughout the year. Our kids' area is a little gem within the midst of it all. From stuffies and games to crafts and books, it's an area beloved by many, many customers (and us, too!). On page 6, we're happy to introduce a particularly familiar face (and name!) and share his first children's book with you. It's a sweet story we think you'll want to share with the little ones in your life.
Elsewhere in this issue of At Home, we proudly introduce you to some special members of our team, this time from the Meat & Seafood Department. These are some of our most experienced and skilled stakeholders, and, as you'll read starting on page 4, they're a lot of fun, too!
Food matters! Truth matters!

Seasonal Recipe Booklet
Family recipes have been a part of the Kowalski's customer experience and a key point of difference for our brand since the very beginning. Recipes for some of our all-time best-selling and most beloved foods originated in the kitchens of the Kowalskis or those of our families and employees. From Grandma Betty's Famous Chip Dip to Mary Anne's Family Favorite Buttercream Icing, we've been sharing our best with you from day one. As these “Family Favorite” recipes became popular in every department throughout our markets, customers began to ask for them, stopping in, calling or emailing, often to get a second or third copy of a favorite Kowalski's recipe card that they'd held on to for years and misplaced. Like a good neighbor, we've always been happy to share our best recipes.
Pick up a complimentary recipe booklet at the information kiosk in your local Kowalski's or browse through the digital version online.
As always, you can search our entire recipe collection at kowalskis.com/recipes at any time of day or night from your desktop or mobile device. With over 2,000 recipes to choose from, our website is a great place to find the perfect recipe for any meal or occasion.
