The Baker's Corner: where we share with you the best baking secrets, recipes, sales, specials, strategies, events, tricks of the trade, stories, memories, and most of all lots of warmth and laughter. Why? Because we have always believed that like crafting quality food and bread, running a family-business is about creating moments and traditions to be enjoyed.
Potica (po-TEE-tsa) is a European sweet bread and a staple at holidays and family gatherings. Each loaf is crafted with the same patience and perfection as it has been for generations. We begin by hand-rolling a paper-thin dough, then layering it with a delicious filling, before baking it to perfection. Available in Walnut, Pecan, Walnut Raisin, Walnut Apple, and Poppy Seed Almond.
Giulio Forti was an Italian baker who immigrated in the early 1900’s. He and his wife Virginia Ricci settled in Hibbing, on Minnesota’s rich Iron Range. Working side-by-side, they handed down life lessons to their four children. They taught them what it means to be a family, how to run a business, and how to make excellent breads and desserts. Thankfully, four generations later, not much has changed.
