My name is Marguerite and I am very pleased to meet you here at Dutch Fika.
Small businesses are said to be a reflection of their owners. I guess that's true for me and Dutch Fika!
Dutch-Fika is a mix of my Dutch/Swedish heritage, my background in pharmaceutical chemistry and teaching and my love for good bread.
Despite being an introvert, I truly enjoy meeting people and if you visit me in my shop, don't be surprised if you end up in a long conversation with me about bread, flour, heritage grains, milling and recipes. Favorite topics include the difference in nutritional value between modern wheat and heritage grains as well as the difference in their digestion: heritage grains lead to a happy body instead of a bloated and still hungry one.
If you like to sit down with me to go through an entire education about grains & guts & sugar and healthy metabolism, please do grab me a soy latte from next door EQ Coffee shop before you come in.
"But if you just want to buy some bread, you are as welcome, of course.
we all have places to go and families to feed."
If you are looking for more information about the ingredients used at Dutch Fika, I would like to invite you to visit our our partners page. That's where I list the places that provide me with my staple ingredients.
