Fred’s Bakery: Bake with passion or don’t bake at all

By Shelley Stepanek

Baking is an art and science combined. If one is also raised in a traditional lifestyle where baking is part of everyday living, that person can share their skills to become a successful baker since baking is their second nature growing up.

One such a person is Romanian-born and raised Alina Kolman. She and her husband, long-time resident Frederick Kolman, joined forces a year ago and decided to partner on a new venture. The duo has entered into the very challenging and competitive business of European baking products. Fred’s courage of venturing in this business was mainly inspired by Alina’s ability to meet the day-to-day tasks that are necessary on a daily basis. The two have built in a short period of time a vast menu of various types of bread (Sourdough, Ciabatta, French Baguettes) quiches, savory pies and over 20 specialty desserts based on old-world recipes. Everything is made with the freshest all-natural ingredients and with absolute care to presentation and taste. I tried their Cremeschnitte (which means Cream Slice in German). Magnificent! The puff pastry is hand-made using only flour, butter, and water, none of the commercial canola oil or hydrogenated fats and you can tell the difference from the first bite.

Alina is also a certified health coach and she is particularly interested in the nutritional value of her products. She cooks with walnuts, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds, raisins or dates and she also makes gluten-free and low-carb bread and desserts for people on special diets. Their Chocolate Salami is the only one made in the state and it is delicious.

They offer prompt service including delivery. As a wholesaler, Fred’s Bakery bakes for commercial accounts, however, their exquisite loaves of bread and baguettes, as well as other fabulous dessert items, can be found at local farmers markets.

For more information on products, prices and farmers market itinerary, call Alina at 702-292.47.52. and check their Facebook page @FredsInternationalBakery.
