Petra Waltraud Lauxen Vigil was raised in a small town in Germany called Kliding. As a young child, she enjoyed watching her mother bake. Through observation and direct instruction, she learned the basics of cooking, which turned in to a passion for baking.
When Petra was 18 years old, she purchased her first baking book, which she still uses today for several of her recipes. She has always
enjoyed baking for family and friends, and always had a strong desire to own her own bakery.
Petra started selling her baked goods at local Farmer’s Markets and can still be found there every weekend. Her baked goods can also be found in some grocery stores, or you can order directly from her online.
Grandpa’s Kitchen offers several gluten-free products: our Bread Mix, Pizza Crust Mix, Baking Flour Blend, Yellow Cake Mix, Chocolate Cake Mix , Pumpkin Bar Mix, and our Family Favorites Cookbook. We are confident that you will love each of our products because the recipes have passed the quality control of our family members—those with Celiac Disease and those without.
Grandpa’s Kitchen first developed a bread/pizza crust mix. Next we developed a gluten-free flour blend. Our blend is a perfect combination of starches and flours blended to give a smooth, light, and fluffy texture to cakes, cookies, pie crust, Danish rolls, pancakes, waffles, etc. We have just added the Yellow Cake Mix and Pumpkin Bar Mix to our product line. Take home one of our mixes today and surprise your family with the best in gluten-free baking.
Vosen’s Bread Paradise is an authentic German bakery serving traditional breads and pastries made from recipes brought over from the old world or developed by Markus Vosen with the same technique that German Master Bakers used for centuries.
We make German breads, rolls, sheet cakes, pastries, and pretzels. We also serve coffee and sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our recipes are not the only authentic German aspect of our bakery. From the smallest pan to our 10,000 lbs. oven, we imported every piece of equipment directly from Germany to create an authentic experience. Purchase a variety of our breads and pastries at Whole Foods locations throughout Utah.
Another important aspect of our business would be that we don’t use any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. None of our breads contain any added sugars or fats. The average bread is made from nothing but flour, water, sourdough, salt and yeast. It’s a pretty simple list, isn’t it? And when the addition of fat is necessary for the characteristics of the product, we use only butter – never shortening or margarine.
