With the upcoming St. Joseph’s and Easter holidays, sweet tables are in season (as if you really needed an excuse). Someone that really knows how to set the table is Chicago’s own Delightful Pastries, a European-style bakery run by pastry chef Dobra Bielinski, who was trained in her native Poland. Along with her mother and brother, Bielinski whips up old-world favorites with the freshest ingredients, including real sugar and butter and no preservatives.
