Thanks to my brother and my daughter today was my first visit to this Detroit Institution. What a welcoming place. Hospitality matches the good food. At the counter and in the kitchen Joe Hakim was totally charming and answered all my questions. Service is outstanding.
You can find this bakery on facebook and twitter. They ship nationwide. The website is ackroydsscottishbakery.com
This bakery features savory pies, pasties, tea cakes, breads, and meats as well as imported groceries such as biscuits and crackers. This time I bought chicken curry pie, Steak and mushroom pasty, bridie, cheese and onion pie and a sausage rolls.
We also had a taste of Irn-bru, pronounced iron brew, really quite delicious.
I have tasted some of these wares, and also shortbread and raspberry bars. Everything so far tasted delicious. The curry is a bit spicy but be brave.
Let’s hear it for Scottish Bakeries! Gracious hospitality and a taste of Scotland….so delicious!
