Potica quality criterium Potica was the customary pastry in my family back in Europe. We have always judged the potica quality by its ratio of dark to white. If that was more than 1 we declared it to be bread and not potica. The ladies were competing to improve the "quality ratio" and proudly displayed some successes. I received your potica as a gift recently and I could not believe its "quality ratio" which exceeded everything I have ever seen in my life. When I read of the "paper thin layers of dough" in the description of your Walnut Potica I could not agree more with that claim. I even skyped its crossection to my sister in Europe who also agreed that this is the best ratio she has seen. But now I watch the pictures of your potica on your website and I see nothing like what i have tasted and bragged about. They do have better ratios than "bread" but nothing is "paperthin". How do I specify my order if I wanted "paper thin layers of dough"? Thanks Zvonko September 2, 2014
Amazing.Worth every penny!! Grew up in Minnesota. Always had Potica, but it was only available around the Christmas holiday. This is the best, even better than my aunts.Now I can have it year round.Love that it comes from a small family owned bakery. Fabulous. May 28, 2014
Your Poteca is wonderful My mother-in-law was from Austria/Yugoslavia background and she made Poteca all the time. She kept her recipe a secret. Believe me, your bakers have her secret. I have a friend who has terminal cancer and her wish was to taste Poteca again. So, I found Poteca in your catalog and ordered the walnut-honey for her. She was so surprised and happy with this gift. It arrived fresh and I thank you for producing such a quality product. It gave me joy to send it and it gave her joy to receive it. God blessed us all, from the hands that baked it, your catalog people who took my order, me, and my friend, that day. March 18, 2014
Better then homemade! Potica was introduced to me by Yogoslavian friends of my parents. It took a whole day to make. Your Potica is just as delicious and fresh, leaving me free to spend the days with family rather than baking. January 1, 2014
Presents you can count on I give the potica loaf to my sister and brother every year. Every year they say that it is an integral part of their Christmas food. My sister eats it on Christmas day and I believe my brother and his wife graze from Christmas to New Years. December 30, 2013
FAMILY HISTORY BEEN BUYING THESE FOR YEARS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO MUCH LIKE WHAT MY MOTHER MADE WHO WAS OF A SLOVENIAN BACKGROUND FROM CLEVELAND. I WATCHED HER MAKE THEM AND HAVE DONE THEM BEFORE BUT JUST DON'T HAVE THE PATIENCE OR TIME ANYMORE. ITS A DIEING TRADITION AND YOU PROVIDE THE EXACT COPY OF WHAT WE HAD ALL OUR LIVES. THANK YOU BARBARA JOSLIN December 25, 2013
Excellent Potica I am from Slovenian ancestry. Potica is made and shared for every holiday, wedding,funeral etc. my grandmother, mother, mother-in-law, my children and myself made it every year. This year was just too hectic for everyone to bake. I saw your ad and thought I would try it. I really thought it would be sparse with nuts and dry...well just yuck. Much to my immense surprise the potica was so very good that I am sorry I didn't order lots of them instead of two. I won't make that mistake again. Everyone loved it. Please don't change a thing. I love your catalogue!!!! December 25, 2013
Lovely Potica It was great but expensive. I have a bigger bottom and a thinner wallet. December 11, 2013

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Baked Fresh Potica Loaf …

"I grew up with this delicious bread." - Patricia Hill, Hutchinson, MN

"I ordered a Walnut Potica from the Christmas catalogue for my cousin and her family who live in Boston, Massachusetts. They shared it at a family gathering on Christmas Eve and said it was delicious. There is no way I could pull myself together during the holiday season to make a potica. Thank you for making the Eastern European favorite available." - Lois Kubit, Parma, OH

"Your potica is just as I remember my grandma's to be. It's not easy to make, which makes me appreciate yours even more. With your help, I've been able to pass along a family holiday tradition. Thanks!" - Karen, Charlotte,

"I was born and raised in Euclid, Ohio, and i used to help my grandmother who came from Slovenia,Yugslavia... and how I loved being with her and remembering my favorite thing in the whole world to eat was potica. It took a day to make. Yours is delicious, and thank you for the memories. Linda" - linda mervar, menlo park, CA

"Seeing this in your catalog brought back memories for me. My grandmother was from Yugoslavia and used to make this as well for my family. I can't wait to try yours and compare the two." - Richard Fabian, Rochester, NY

"My mother and I used to make potica for every special occasion. It required a devotion to the process for the whole day. This potica is exactly like the wonderful ones that we used to make. Basic ingredients and flavorful goodness that are so much appreciated and loved. Thanks for sticking with tradition." - Jo Smallwood, Newport Beach, CA

"I am a Slovenian from Ohio, and my mother made this every year and filled the dough so full you couldn't see the layers. Yours is very good and my family likes it, which means I don't have to do any of the work. It's a two-day process of love. I order it every year. Thanks! Barb" - Barbara G. Joslin, Punta Gorda, FL

"I've been ordering your potica for several years now. My mother is Slovenian but moved from Pueblo, Colorado, to Indiana when she married my father. Potica was always a part of our trips home, but neither my mother nor I ever made one. Now I share yours with her and her friends at her nursing home at Christmas. It's like going home for the holidays." - Jan Armstrong, Springville, IN

"Grew up in Cleveland, OH. In Georgia 47 years now. Mom's side was Slovenian, and homemade Potica was a part of every holiday and celebration. I have a cousin in Cleveland who just sent me three loaves for my freezer - made with the walnuts and mine HAS TO HAVE raisins. She has the BEST source from an elderly Slovenian lady. Anytime I get a visitor from up there I tell them to bring Potica. LOVE THE STUFF. Thanks." - Claudette Mazurkiewicz, Grayson, GA
