Since the 1930’s a secret group of Chicagoans have been getting together to determine the future of our baked goods, the Bakers.
That’s right, Every first Wednesday of the month, for the past 90 years, the secret society named “The Baker's Dozen” has been getting together and devouring each other's food.
The Society consists of leaders from the oldest family-owned bakeries in and around Chicago. Members have changed over the years, with long stays including Weber’s, Dinkel’s Bakery, Reuter’s Bakery, and some which prefer to remain anonymous. Every meeting is themed with each bakery taking turns choosing the topics of the month.
In the end the society's goal is not to control the bakery, but to help each other out so they can insure great affordable locally baked goods for generations to come.
