Celebrating my Papa on Fathers Day

·
Written by Gabriel Muzzolini
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!

A Spring Time Reflection - Christies Bakery

A Spring Time Reflection

·
Written by Gabriel Muzzolini
Since I’ve moved away from Saskatoon, it has been a year of firsts. And with Easter having come and gone, this was the first year I didn’t help prepare the baking for Easter weekend. While I don’t necessarily miss shaping and bagging hundreds and hundreds of buns, there was a part of me missing being with my family doing the one thing we do best. As a way of (emotionally) making up for my absence in the bakery, I wanted to take a moment to praise Blair and Tracey for all the amazing work they do. I know they don’t often brag about what they do, so I’ll gladly do it for them!

Family and Food

·
Written by Gabriel Muzzolini

Last week my parents were in town. It was the first time I was able to see them in over a year and a half, besides a virtual chat of course. Obviously I love when I get to see my parents because it means that there will be food and drinks aplenty. And yes spending time with them,  catching up, and doing all the things parents and children do. But from day one to the last day of their trip, lunches, dinners, and get togethers were planned. Between the going out and homemade meals, it was abundantly clear how deep the tie between my family and food is.

You may know how linked we are to bread and baking (it has been our business for over 50 years after all), but I thought I’d share more about our family and our connection to food. Please forgive me for getting sentimental!

Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there! From kisses on boo boos to cures for broken hearts, moms always know what to do and say. They have one of the hardest jobs in the world, and that’s in addition to whatever their day job may be. It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t take this opportunity to say happy Mothers Day to my own mother: I love you Mom, I hope you have a great day (but all that pressure is on Dad). But I wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the matriarch of my family and the mother of the bakery, my Nona.

We recently announced our “From the Vault” series: a collection of Christies classics from our nearly 90 years of operation. Some of these recipes we have saved haven’t seen the shelves in quite some time—and some haven’t been used at all! If you haven’t heard, we’re starting the series off with the perfect treat for Mother’s Day: our Classic Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. It’s available in a limited quantity for Mother’s Day, so make sure you order one today! To celebrate our walk down memory lane, I wanted to share some personal memories about growing up in the bakery.

Working In A Pandemic With Local Business Owner, Kevin Petty

Most of us know at least one or two people personally who run a small business in Saskatoon. Without question 2020 has been tough for people who have had their livelihood turned upside down. We thought to start 2021 we’d do a bit of a review with one of our producers to look back on the past year and hear about their experience working through a pandemic filled year. Kevin Petty from Saskatoon Spruce was nice enough to sit down and have a chat with us about how last year went for him.

Talking Honey with Steven Hawrishok - Christies Bakery

Talking Honey with Steven Hawrishok

·
Written by Gabriel Muzzolini

A lot of times, it’s easy to guess what someone might be passionate about: an athlete pursuing a professional sports career or an artist travelling the world to find inspiration for their next project. Other times, someone might be doing what they love in a field you might not expect. For Steven Hawrishock, owner and proprietor of Kitako Lake Honey, it’s definitely the latter.

He comes from a family of beekeepers, and while many of us might run away at the first sight of those little striped stingers, he couldn’t think of anything else he’d rather be doing. We recently had a (virtual) chat with Steven to learn about life as a beekeeper and producer of honey. Within a few minutes of talking, it became crystal clear just how much he loves what he’s doing, so I had to find out how someone becomes as big of a lover of bees and honey as he is.
