One of the reasons you may choose to buy from a bakery rather than purchase packaged baked goods is that you want to believe that the ingredients are pure. You can be sure at Delightful Pastries as it has built its reputation on fresh, made-from-scratch cooking using family recipes without preservatives or other fillers. "We believe that every customer deserves the best quality food just like we make them at home." said partner Robert Hawryszczuk. Delightful Pastries is highlighting several of its baked goods this month. Start the year off sweetly with yummy cream puffs -- January 2 is National Cream Puff Day. Other January specials at Delightful Pastries include pistachio and other shortbread specials on January 6 for National Shortbread Day and mini and full pie specials (apple, pecan and more) for National Pie Day on January 23, Chocolate Cake on January 27, National Chocolate Cake Day and buttery croissants on National Croissant Day, January 30.
Delightful Pastries is located at the Chicago French Market, 131 N. Clinton St., Chicago; 312-234-9644.
