"While many were gathering around their tvs in anticipation of the Superbowl, I spent my afternoon with Chef Dobra in the back of her bakery making paczkis & chrusciki.

It was a wonderful time to learn first hand how to make these polish delights from scratch, allowing even more appreciation for those that make them every year during this time.

Chef Dobra shows a passion about baking and pastry making, which is evident with all the tasty creations filling the cases in the front of the bakery. I look to Chef Dobra and her expertise as she taught us about the history of paczki, creating the proper dough with patience, frying these globes to a perfect golden brown and filling them with glorious jams, jellies and custards..."

"I think that I found my favorite neighbourhood bakery not in my neighbourhood. About a month ago, I visited Delightful Pastries for a cooking class with my cooking group. Chef Dobra is an amazing host and chef. She taught us the intricacies of tarts and pastry crusts with an amazing sense of humour and wit. She was so incredibly welcoming and sweet throughout the class. She treated us to hot tea, pastries from the shop, and paczkis. It was my first paczki for my Midwestern Polish self. The paczkis are buttery, light, and sweet. I enjoyed the plum butter version which my mom later revealed is a prune, but I don't care, it's damn good. After this class, I fell in love with the bakery..."
