In 1884, in the basement of a building on the corner of York and Jefferson Streets, something miraculous was happening. Jewish Russian immigrant Isadore Gottlieb had built a bakery that would soon be renowned in Savannah for every tasty morsel pulled from its busy oven, creating the perfect combination of southern and Jewish delicacies. Goods were delivered to citizens and stores by cart, pulled by a horse that knew every stop along the way, cementing the bakery's reputation as a true neighborhood operation. From shiny, egg-brushed challah to Sister Sadie's hazelnut cake to the ever-popular chocolate chewies, customers would crowd the store for a single irresistible bite. Join the next generation of Gottliebs as they recount the heartwarming stories and recipes that forever preserve the bakery's place in Savannah's history.
