Since opening in 2018, Meg and Molly Svec, sisters and co-owners of Spilt Milk Pastry, 811 South Blvd., have navigated the bakery business with grace and humility. Their increased kitchen capacity has afforded the delightful duo noteworthy opportunities to explore the savory side of life while staying true to their sweet traditions.
The Svec sisters work tirelessly to ensure the quality of their pastries, cookies, breads and biscuits remain unwavering in their quality and flavor — the dynamic duo is already preparing for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Pre-orders for holiday pies are being taken now.
Heirloom Apple Pie is sure to be among Spilt Milk’s best sellers on their 2022 Thanksgiving menu. In 2018, former Chicago Tribune dining critic, Phil Vettel, called this pie “a work of art.” It features a timeless mixture of several rotating varieties of heirloom apples, baked in an all-butter double pie crust.
Georgia Pecan pie joins traditional pumpkin, apple cranberry, and pumpkin pecan praline to round out Spilt Milk’s Thanksgiving pie selections. Homemade whipped cream in classic vanilla and chai vanilla varieties can be added to any order as well.
In addition, the pie shop will offer savory quiches, pumpkin bread with maple glaze, banana bread, “Bake At Home” buttermilk biscuits, wine, and more. Meg and Molly are encouraging interested customers to order early for the best selection. They will sell out and typically reach production capacity around Halloween.
The cheery bakery now serves wines by the glass and recently launched a grab-and-go lunch program featuring sandwiches, snack trays, quiche and puddings. Their chef-driven Friday night dinners have been gaining in popularity as well. Meals, available for pre-order on their website, serve four and are prepared by Spilt Milk newcomer, Michael Forman.
Chef Foreman’s menu offerings have included roasted chicken, fresh squash and roasted rosemary potatoes as well as baked sausage manicotti featuring house made Slagel Farms pork sausage in a homemade tomato sauce with fennel & herbs.
The savory meal program is a bourgeoning part of the business that brings a genuine sweetness to every endeavor. Oh! And don’t forget, Spilt Milk’s pre-orders for the Christmas season will be available starting Black Friday, Friday, Nov. 25
