Weihnachtsstollen ist Back

It’s time, yet again, for one of our favorite holiday traditions. Stollen is back.

Stollen or Christstollen is a tradition dating back to 14th century Germany. Germans baked stollen loaves at Christmas to honor princes and church dignitaries, and to sell at fairs and festivals for holiday celebrations. Stollen is a bread with dried fruit and coated with sugar for a touch of sweetness.

Our favorite legend pertaining to Stollen Bread is that the hump on our loaves, represents the humps of the camels that carried gifts to the Christ Child on the first Christmas. Stollen is filled with candied fruits and raisins represent the precious jewels and gifts in the camel’s packs.

Our stollen is made fresh in-house by our very own Chef Niky. It is available at our deli for $12.49
