Bubbe & Bestemor's Baking Co. is on hiatus. That means no more goodies! At least, not for sale. We have no intentions of retiring from the kitchen altogether, so we encourage you to follow along on Instagram and on our blog. Expect recipes, observations, and general commentary. All topical, of course.
Bubbe: n. grandmother (Yiddish)
In honor of our semi-fictional grandmothers Bubbe and Bestemor, we take the best of local Maine ingredients and the culinary traditions of Ashkenazic Jewish and Nordic baking to bring you the cozy echoes of the old world right here in the new.
Drawing inspiration from the traditions of our grandmothers and great-grandmothers, we are not afraid to experiment with new flavors, ingredients, or styles; nor with old ones.
We shape all of our breads and pastry by hand because we believe a constant physical connection to our creations keeps us in tune with the spirits of our ancestors, and we believe this human connection is passed on to you, bringing you into the family, even if just for a minute.
