Tabon, and Israeli kosher bakery, has
opened in San Francisco.
The bakery, started by
a former Israeli diamond dealer,
has been producing 1,000 pitas a day,
as well challah, pita, bagels, babka,
rugelach, bourekas, and sufganiyot.
The recipes originated from
pastry chef Yanni’s great-grandfather,
a Jewish baker who
moved to Israel from Iraq,
and ran a bakery in the Machane Yehuda market
The Jewish community is sighing in
relief as its only other kosher bakery,
Grand Bakery, in Oakland, is closing.
