Though breaking bread brings friends together, it tears bread apart. Savor disassembling loaves with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two 2.5 lb. loaves of povitica bread value at Strawberry Hill Povitica Company in Lenexa (a $41.36 value).
Open more than 25 years, Strawberry Hill Povitica Company keeps Eastern European baking traditions alive by baking sweet loaves of dense dessert bread hand-packed with nuts and spices. Using recipes passed down from the mother of Strawberry Hill’s founder, chefs deftly roll layers of dough, sugar, and walnuts following Old World techniques.
A dozen flavors include apple cinnamon, packed with soft apple pieces, and the classic English walnut, incorporating layers of crushed nuts and honey. The decadent strawberry cream-cheese tempts taste buds with rosy swirls, and pumpkin spice finds a better use for the orange vegetable than carving it into a football helmet. Kosher certification ensures that each sweet morsel is prepared to exacting standards.
Strawberry Hill Povitica Company
Harley, the founder of Strawberry Hill Povitica Company, began baking povitica bread in 1984 using his mother's traditional Slavic recipe. He passed away in 1999, but his children and dedicated bakers continue to prepare the dense, sweet bread following his mother's technique. They roll dough into paper-thin layers, pile on ingredients such as nuts and honey, and roll the layers into loaves that weigh 2.5 pounds each after they're baked. Patrons can choose from Kosher-certified flavors such as english walnut, cokolada, or chocolate-chip cream cheese. The bread can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: toasted and buttered, crowned with a scoop of ice cream, or sandwiched around a whole roasted turkey.
