April 2015: Bring on the Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are my least favorite cookie and I can’t think of anything worse than a blondie. This is no April Fools joke! I dislike chocolate chip cookies and have vowed to never sell them from the bakery. Unfortunately for me, my bakers love chocolate chip cookies and thought it would be a funny April Fools Day joke to sell them today. Happy April Fools Day and enjoy the chocolate chip cookies – they won’t be around for long.

It is hard to believe that Mathieu and I started Floriole nearly nine years ago at the Green City Market. Our first year in business, I was pregnant with our daughter and we worked our tails off trying to bake enough for each market. We started Floriole with a tent, folding table and pastries that highlighted the bountiful produce of our midwestern farmers. Over the years we have watched our business and daughter grow up together – she gets taller and Floriole hires more employees. Today we have a beautiful brick and mortar storefront in Lincoln Park with an expanded menu and over 30 employees AND we continue to make simple food that uses produce from some of our favorite farmers.

Please join us on April  8th to celebrate 5 years in the store. There will be cake and festivities to mark the occasion.
