As a child growing up in the Assyrian villages near Mesopotamia, Atoria used to watch her mother and grandmother bake flatbread using their family recipe and a rustic hearth oven.
Unable to find similar bread in America, Atoria started making her own and it wasn’t long before a dream took shape: to bake and share her family recipe for the authentic bread of her youth with people in her new home country. And Atoria’s Family Bakery was born. Atoria and her children worked hard to make this dream a reality, and thirty years later, it’s the next generation—Atoria’s grandchildren—who are working to bring her recipes to a broader audience. This is still the bread of Atoria’s home and her youth, the bread of family and of celebrations and of happy memories.
