CHALLAH in Chicago area

faleentoby | Sep 18, 2007 09:47 AM

I am trying to find a terrific place for kosher challah north of chicago perhaps around buffalo grove, northbrook, deerfield, evanston highland park, etc.....i have been so used to the absolute best challah from a place in New York called Zomicks (they dont ship)that i find other places to be attractive to look at but absolutely tasteless. I need at least one very large one for my sons wedding and probably some smaller. Someone suggested my calling a place called Breadsmith in skokie..i called about a week prior to Rosh Hashana to get an idea of what he has and pricing. The owner said he was far to busy to talk and would not even give me the price of one challah. I called again yesterday now that things have calmed a bit. The girls there didnt seem to know what a large challah would look like nor size of them and couldnt give specific pricing. Told me after much prodding that i would have to talk to the owner who would call me back. I waited until about 5pm my time which was only 4pm chicago time and got a recording that they were busy and would call back and to leave my name and number but immediately another recording came on telling me that this persons 'mailbox' was full. This doesnt impress me as a dependable place. Does anyone know of a place for DELICIOUS challot in that general area. I have someone coming north from the oak park area who could pick up for me and i am at a loss.
