and golden raisins. This hearkens back to bakery's roots in
Bavaria, although Dinkel's version doesn't contain marzipan.
Stollen, king cake, donuts and cakes are among the
big sellers, but there's a reason Fat Tuesday is referred
to as Paczki Day. Karl expected the bakery to produce
about 25,000 over the course of that extended weekend.
It has always been chaotic during that time period, but
especially this year with Illinois' mask mandate being
lifted and more customers entering the store. Production
of paczki has ramped up in recent years - in 2020,
right before the start of the pandemic, Dinkel's output
was 30,000 for that extended weekend. While there
was an understandable dip last year, the numbers rose
considerably in 2022.
This year, Dinkel's made some changes to the menu in
Paczki have been a
great product for
Stan's, which now has
15 locations throughout
Chicago.
also keeping better. It's also more expensive to produce,
and with supply issues and high ingredient prices to
consider, it makes even more sense to stick to tradition.
" It's nice to have a season where things are offered
and then they're not offered, because then it creates that
special feeling, " Karl says. " For a bakery, it's throwing
back to a more traditional time with the seasonality,
whether it be religious or not. "
While paczki gives Dinkel's headlines in the early part
of the year, other traditional items bring in customers
throughout the year. For instance, the bakery's signature
item is its stollen, a German fruit bread with pineapple
response to ingredient shortages. The bakery couldn't find
enough strawberries to make a strawberry paczki. Instead,
with an abundance of apples on hand, Dinkel's offered an
apple paczki that was quite popular. It created a unique
challenge that needed to be addressed, but Dinkel's was
able to find a way to balance tradition with ingenuity.
Polish background
My next stop, via a ride on city's famed 'L' train, took
me north to Delightful Pastries in Jefferson Park. This
Chicago favorite first opened in 1998, providing European
pastries to a loyal Polish community (that has since
dwindled). The family bakery truly feels that way when
you visit, from the greeting
you receive as you walk in
the door to the way owner
Dobra Bielinski interacts with
her staff.
While the demographics
are changing with many of
the Polish community moving
away due to the pandemic,
Delightful Pastries stays dedicated
to providing paczki
and other sweet treats to its
community.
Unlike other bakeries,
Delightful Pastries keeps
the bakery case stocked with
its tasty paczki year-round.
But the annual Paczki Day
is something special. While
walk-in orders are available,
