The Times they are a changing in Huntington

2017 is the beginning of the 30th year Reinwald's Bakery is in Huntington!

As I walk in downtown Huntington, there are very few businesses, besides us, that have been continuously operated in the same location with the same owners. A friend said to me "what about Finnegan's or Marsh's?"  Both of those changed hands a few years ago. Of course there is nothing wrong with that - they still are a part of what makes Huntington special. My point is as an old-timer once said to me "the only thing that doesn't change is change itself".

A Raucous Tradition...

March 1st is also Ash Wednesday, the start of the Christian Lenten season. People around the world are familiar with the celebrations of the oncoming lent. It is Mardis Gras in New Orleans: Carnival in many places including Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil and Cologne, Germany. In the Bavarian region of Germany, where my father comes from, it is called Fasching. Fat Tuesday is referred to as Fasching Dienstag.

These events started out as deeply rooted celebrations of the coming of spring. As Christianity spread, many Lenten rituals were performed for the preparation of Easter. It seems that...

Life isn't a bowl of cherries 🍒 but it could be!

January is the slowest month of the year in the bakery business.  I took advantage of some extra time and unpacked a few more boxes that were left "untouched" in the move.  Of course as I unpacked a box of books, I leafed through some to determine it’s placement on my book shelf.

One book was a compilation of bakery recipes that had appeared in previous issues of a weekly baking magazine published in New York and Chicago.  The book was published in 1945. In reading some of the accompanying articles, I was amazed with...

Happy Holidays from Reinwald's Bakery

A week after Thanksgiving and we are already into the month of December. Christmas is under three weeks away, and I feel like Tevye from “Fiddler on the Roof.”

A customer told me of his pumpkin pie left untouched on his holiday table. I asked him why he bought it and he said, “Pumpkin pie is traditional.” Reinwald’s Bakery in the month of December is a place of tradition. We bake our German cultural specialties especially our Christmas Stollen and German Christmas cookies. The Reinwald family favorite is the...

What's Changed since 1951? Thanksgiving then and now.

In my November newsletter, as is my habit, I always end up with upcoming events. For Nov. 8th, I reminded everyone that it would be election day and you should exercise your right to vote. One of my employees had not voted in over 12 years. My encouragement worked as he cast a ballot after my entreaty to vote. I commented that the new president elect, whoever it may be deserves our support. At that time it was widely believed that Hillary Clinton would be the victor. The fact that Donald Trump won, doesn’t change my call for unilateral support. I understand that some people may feel wronged, but...

A Kaleidoscope Of Colors, Tastes & Smells... It Must Be Autumn!

It is November and finally there is some Autumn-like crispness to our evenings. I like fall because of the kaleidoscope of colors on my trip home, the ability to take a strenuous walk without sweating, the World Series and particularly this year, a visit from our new granddaughter. I know I am biased but isn’t she a cutie. Who would know that I would be making silly faces and even sillier noises just for the hope of a smile. Carole’s feelings are extremely evident in the above picture. There is only one downer in this whole grandparent experience: she is all the way on the west coast. We are counting the days to Christmas when my son’s family comes for their next visit.

Back to School? Um... Not So Fast!

Watching a little television or listening to the radio, the mediums are full of back to school advertisements.  In that vein, it was my intention to make this issue back to school related.  Our college aged counter help is coming up on their last week here. However, with the daytime temperatures in the 90’s and humidity likewise, it sure doesn’t feel like school days and autumn are around the corner.  Similar to the 60’s in December, it just doesn’t feel right.

The temperature and the humidity create great challenges to the baking process.  It is hard to control the...
