The Courtyard Kitchens

Good Stuffed Perogies are just that!

Good Stuffed Perogies are just that! GOOD! STUFFED! And DELICIOUS!


Good Stuffed Perogies have been producing fresh, small batch, mashed-potato filled pillow puffs right here in The Courtyard Kitchens (check out the full freezer of new product behind Chef Dave, waiting to be packaged). These flavour filled pockets are made by hand, fresh to order twice a week and delivered right to your door, making dinner quick, easy and tasty.




Once I had seen these little delights being made in our Kitchens, I ordered myself a bag. I had trouble choosing the flavour, all four varieties sounded so good. I finally decided on a bag of Fully Loaded! With my freshly made bag in hand, I couldn’t wait to get home to cook them up for dinner. I was not disappointed! They were quick and easy to prepare, so I decided to add some more bacon and caramelized onions to the dish. By the time my perogies had come to a boil and started to float to the top of the pot, my additional toppings were ready. I gave the plump little potato packages a brief sauté for a few minutes (until golden brown), then topped them with the bacon and onions. The whole meal took about 15 minutes to prepare, and I was ready to dig in. Mmmmmm... good stuff! My Fully Loaded, personalized perogies where savoury and scrumptious, the perfect comfort food. A great meal made with fresh local ingredients ready in less time than ordering in. I’m now looking forward to trying all the flavours!






Jeff Collins and Dave Rogers (the chefs of Good Stuffed Perogies) really love what they do, and with bags of perogies flying off the shelf, there is talk around The Courtyard Kitchens of new flavours and combinations. I've even heard whispers of a possible dessert perogy. Oh my, the possibilities!

From The Kitchens to The Garage

Recently we had the opportunity to visited The Garage Rehearsal Studio at 409 Nyberg Street in Kitchener. This unique facility offers jam rooms, rehearsal spaces and recording studios for musicians and bands a like. This premier rehearsal facility provides professionally treated rooms, some stocked with top of the line equipment, others empty, just waiting to be filled with melody. The Garage has both hourly and monthly rental options with convenient hours.



You might be thinking: ‘What does a rentable certified kitchen have to do with a rehearsal studio?”. Well, we reached out the Patrick (the owner of The Garage) to grow our community and to connect with another local business. The Garage operates under a similar business model as The Courtyard Kitchens, where the key to our success is through providing spaces and resources to others, so they can achieve their goals. With this common ground we toured The Garage and sat down with Patrick to share our experiences, success and learn from one another.




While touring The Garage we discovered that the facility opened in October and since then has rented two private monthly rooms, and has had great success with its hourly jam rooms. Recording options have just be introduced and are available Tuesday to Sunday mornings, making The Garage a one stop shop for any musician.


With rooms that can hold up to 5 musician The Garage is quickly becoming a destination for local performers and hobbyist. With the holidays just around the corner pick up an hourly jam session as a great gift for the musically inclined on your list.
