If you’ve been a customer of Christies Bakery for some time, you’ve likely ran into Ennio Muzzolini at one point or another. It’d be a conversation you’d have a hard time forgetting, as he has a loud and unforgettable voice (double that if you catch him singing) and an even larger personality. While he hasn’t been baking for a few years now, he’ll occasionally make a guest appearance at the bakery. He’s a man that goes by many names: Ennio, The E-Man, E-Unit, The Dude, The Guy, Pops, Dad, Bo. I call him Papa. For Mothers Day I wrote about my grandmother being one of my heroes, so it’s only fair I do the same for him. After all, there’d be no bakery without him!
Let’s be real for a moment. Turkey is great and all, but what we get most excited about at Thanksgiving dinner is the sides! Fluffy, buttery mashed potatoes. Crispy, seared Brussels sprouts. Creamy mac and cheese. And, of course, stuffing! It often gets overlooked, but really good stuffing can get people talking and our recipe for sourdough stuffing just might steal the show at your next family get-together.
It’s hard to beat the satisfying nostalgia of a good peanut butter and jam sandwich, but we think this sandwich hits the nostalgia vibes even harder…
Hands up if your kid's favourite subject in school is “lunch.” We’ll be the first to admit that we can relate to this. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! A delicious, nutritious lunch gives your kids something to look forward to and fuels an afternoon of learning. In fact, we think this Pizza Sub recipe using our house-made baguettes is so good that it might even motivate them to spring up out of bed and get ready to catch the bus without a fuss just so they can get to lunchtime sooner.
September is nearly here, and that means we’re in the heat of back to school season. To try and help you get ready for those busy mornings, here is a quick list of easy breakfast ideas to get your day off to a great start!
I’m freshly returned from Vancouver with renewed energy and enthusiasm. A change is as good as a holiday, but a holiday is still the best!
My mom and I had a great time at the Bakery Showcase in stunning Vancouver. From the Women in Baking Panel, to the Baker’s Association of Canada Dinner Cruise, to visiting, dining and walking with old friends and family, it was a super fun adventure all around. Not to mention the supportive feeling of the baking community who have so much knowledge to share.
I have many learning from the event and I plan to apply them and hopefully build a better and more sustainable business.
When every March rolled by, I would see an advertisement for the International Pizza Expo in Vegas. I always wanted to attend, but I could never make it work. This year, I made it work!!
I even dragged along my husband, my two brothers and their partners and it was totally worth it!
March 8th was International Women's Day and we wanted to take time to shine a spotlight on a couple of the amazing women in our family. We're started with Blair's partner, Jenny, last week and now we're sharing Janet's story. Janet is the matriarch of the Muzzolini family. She's knows kung fu and how to handle a sword, so don't mess with her!

We're still riding high from our last pizza party, Big Night for Pizza Lovers! We wanted to make sure we shared Tracey's thoughts about the event and include some pictures of all the fun we had! We'll be announcing our next event soon, so make sure to stay tuned...
On Monday, Leisha Grebinski from CBC Radio came to the bakery record and broadcast her Saskatoon Morning show! It was a joy to have her and the crew in the bakery. We talked about the joy of baking and, of course, shared some croissants!
We've been busy getting ready for our Big Night Pizza Lovers party, and so have Kathryn and Bret from the Cheese List. They'll be serving up some cheeses alongside us, so we did a little Q & A so you could get to know them a little bit!

There isn't a loaf of bread or a pastry that these two haven't seen. As our baking leads, Bonnie is the one who designs all our amazing cookies and Conrad is in charge of making sure the bread looks and tastes amazing!
Pizza is pizza, right? Nope. Especially if you ask the Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletana (more on them later). As much as pizza can vary simply by the variety of toppings, there are actually dozens of styles and variations of pizza all over the globe. But among food purists, culinary historians and proud Italians, Neapolitan Pizza is the king. Well, the queen actually... we’ll get to that too.
Bread baking is a beautiful art that requires a lot of hard work, training and patience to perfect. We thought it would be fun to have Tracey drop some knowledge about the ins and outs of baking every once in a while! This week she talked about scoring!
We have an amazing team of human beings and wanted to help you get to know them more! We're starting with two of our managers, Kathy and Zarish. Read on to get to know the people that bring you the best baking in the city!
