Marla Bakery is owned by Amy Brown and Joe Wolf. Amy comes from a long line of women who love food, and baking in particular. In fact, the name Marla is a acronym for the women who taught and inspired her to bake--her grandmothers, mother, step-mother, and of course, herself! Therefore, there really is no one Marla in particular, but the name Marla is a tribute to a style of baking and cooking passed down through generations.

The recipes from Marla bakery are inspired by Amy’s family recipes, her time working in a bakery in Turkey, and her time working in a bakery in Italy. Each week she serves up goodies like pot de creme, Marla Buns, beer cheese with homemade whey crackers, and freshly-baked bread.
