.heim

Heim[at]. Noun. German. Feeling of home; not attached to a physical place but to a memory, a sensation, a longing.

With my creations I hope to evoke familiarity. Enjoying a piece of cake your mother or grandma made for a special occasion. Like the sweet your parents gave you after a long day’s trip. An unexpected treat gifted to you by a friend.

Memory elevates the experience. My sweets are based on my personal history.  The yeast breads my Mama and Oma made that filled our home with a delicious scent and our bellies with joy. I hold that dear. And I am confident you will feel the same.

Heim relies on locally-sourced, organic ingredients as much as possible and cares about sustainability - the packaging is eco-friendly.
