It all began with a sweet tooth and a dream. In March of 2007, Bonnie left the world of finance, packed her bags and headed to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. Having the time of her life and learning the tools to make her dream become a reality, Vanilya Bakery was born in November 2009. The inspiration for Vanilya is the Turkish translation of the word vanilla, Bonnie’s love of the flavor, and the orchid plant from which it comes. This divine flavor was once considered to be the food of the gods. From sugar to spice, coffee to chocolate, berries to melons, nearly everything we bake contains one common ingredient: vanilla. The finest Bourbon Vanilla has a way of enhancing the flavors of all the indulgences made at Vanilya Bakery.
