Viking Pastries gets a Food Network "Save My Bakery" Makeover
With all the nastiness in Lower Merion Township and the constant misery inflicted upon Ardmore by Lower Merion Township every time they say they want to "improve" something, once again something people and small business driven (or "organic") takes center stage. And as someone who grew up going to Viking Pastries I am so happy they have the center spotlight in a story that to me is holiday wonderful.
At first when I saw this it was all via the Ardmore Initiative on Twitter and Instagram and Facebook. Because I live in Chester County now I thought they had done this for Viking Pastries, but they were just talking about it - much the way I would have if I was still living there. I kept seeing things pop up about #allaboutardmore #LowerMerion #Ardmore so I called up some of my friends and they told me the fabulous news: that Viking Pastries had applied to be on the Food Network/Cooking Channel Show Save My Bakery! This is a show I actually have seen and they did a makeover on an NJ bakery called DiBartolo Bakery in Collingswood NJ. The host is a pastry chef named Kerry Vincent. Anyway, this is so awesome! Couldn't happen to nicer people! Viking Pastries is always generous with the community, so I hope you will remember that and visit them and other Main Street Ardmore businesses this holiday season (as in not just patronize the chain store over at Suburban Square.)
