Though Jerry Seinfeld and Bette Midler attended the opening gala for the Jewish Heritage Museum in Philadelphia, they weren’t the only stars of the show. Everyone—including Seinfeld and Midler—wanted a piece of a different guest: the sweet, perfectly braided challah.
Based in Queens, New York, Challywood was the bakery behind the event’s beloved bread, and its team continues to win fans today by shipping out fresh-baked loaves in traditional and unusual flavors. The kitchen crafts these certified-kosher loaves without dairy, artificial ingredients, or Pop Rocks, and bakes them until the crust develops a golden sheen. Available flavor variations include cinnamon raisin, chocolate chip, apple cinnamon, and onion, and loaves come in an assortment of shapes and sizes.
