Far from the sloping prairies of Eastern Europe, John and Jerri Banks were hard at work bringing pastries from the Old World to consumers in Houston, Texas. The year was 1982, and though it would be several years before Food Network would name Kolache Factory one of the top five drive-thrus in the country, the on-the-go bakery was becoming a popular destination for breakfast, lunch, and leakfast. The menu is simple: traditional slavic pastry rolls filled with savory and sweet ingredients accompanied by gourmet coffee. Today, the Banks' Texas bakery has spread to several American cities, though all franchises continue to serve the centuries-old baked goods.
From the first waft as you dive headfirst through Breadsmith's door and slither your way to its inviting counter, it's readily apparent that each morsel of tantalizing fare is made from scratch, trace amounts of sniff, and stardust. The family-centric bakery uses some of the finest, freshest, and most forbidden fruit-like ingredients to create the city's highest-quality breads. Breadsmith's list of dozens of breads changes seasonally and consists of many European-style and whole-grain loaves. April's daily bread offerings, for example, range from $2.79 to $9.50 a loaf and include French baguettes ($3.59), rustic Italian ($4.25) paisanos, sourdough ($4.29), heart-healthy flaxseed ($4.79), braided challah that'll make you hollah ($5.99), apple-pie bread ($6.99) that occasionally contains baseballs and pictures of Mom, and a few surprises. All of the bread is tenderly handmade and hearth-baked in a six-ton Bongard oven while being sung gentle lullabies.
Almost 100 years ago, Peter J. Oberweis found himself with a surplus of milk. Rather than throw it out or freeze it into popsicles, Peter began selling it to his neighbors, an endeavor that was so popular that he began a milk-delivery service in 1927. Fast-forward to today, and Oberweis Dairy still delivers glass bottles of creamy milk to doorsteps. The small family-owned dairies that produce milk exclusively for Oberweis pledge never to use artificial growth hormones, therefore imbuing craft cheeses, super-premium ice cream, and yogurt with fresh, unobstructed taste. Oberweis partners with other like-minded companies to deliver such items as certified-humane Phil’s Fresh Eggs, Chuckanut Bay Foods cheesecake, and Connie’s Pizza to homes or to sell them at the company’s various retail locations.
