Diane’s Inspiration – Owner and passionate lover of baked goods…
the way they were meant to be.
Fennome is the first line of products Heirzoom Bakery is proud to offer, inspired from a recipe baked often by my dear Aunt Betty. Aunt Betty loved to bake. Every holiday or special occasion she would mix, roll, fill and bake dozens and dozens of these wonderful flaky spirals of fruit and buttery pastry. They were so special and always the treat that resulted in an empty plate.
A few years ago, I became so frustrated when I would go into a local bakery brimming with cookies, cakes and pastries galore looking absolutely delicious, but upon taking a bite, time after time I would be so disappointed. What happened to the butter in the buttercream? The real raspberries in the puff pastry twists? The pound cakes were filled with corn syrup and vegetable shortening, instead of real cane sugar and real butter. As these changes evolved, they were no longer the recipes that we remember loving.
I was inspired to launch Heirzoom Bakery to offer authentic ethnic baked goods to everyone the way they were meant to be. What makes this company so special is that we are not just a manufacturer of premium specialty baked goods. We are so much more than that! To the generation who remembers, we take you back to a place almost forgotten. After taking a bite our customers often say something like “Wow, I remember my grandma made something like this but haven’t experienced it in years!”
Heirzoom Bakery fennome are also a hit with younger authentic food lovers. A few bites of fennome will take you on a journey to a place you may have never had the opportunity of visiting, or that existed years before you were even born.
I thank you all for your support and appreciation of my culinary passion. I am delighted to share my family recipe with you!
