"A Secret Society Of Chicago Bakers Meets Every Month — And It’s Keeping Beloved Bakeries Alive"

Block Club Chicago:

The bakers meet the first Wednesday of every month, each carrying a fresh-baked item. They stand around a table and the ritual begins: They devour each other’s food.

This is the Bakers Dozen, a secret society of leaders from the oldest family-owned bakeries in and around Chicago — and this group is helping beloved bakeries continue to thrive.
