New Bakery in Chattanooga, Tennessee

The Chattanooga Time Free Press reports on the opening of the city's first kosher bakery:
The corner of Hamilton Town Center on Gunbarrel Road in East Brainerd just got a little sweeter with the opening of Abraham’s Kosher and Parve Bakery.

The new business gives the area a place to find pastries that are all kosher and dairy free.

Edith Martinez and husband, Eloy, opened the bakery in early February. They had once owned a kosher bakery in Florida.

The Martinezes pride themselves in the quality and prices of their baked goods, with big muffins selling at 55 cents, large cupcakes 75 cents and large cakes with a choice of icings and fillings going for $14.99. All are made from scratch.

Rabbi Meir Goldstein of B’nai Zion Congregation certified the bakery as kosher and said that though there are other bakeries in town preparing kosher foods with a couple of parve (dairy free) offerings, “What’s unique about Abraham’s is that everything that’s baked there is considered parve. And this is the only bakery doing it.”
