On holidays, they produce up to
1,500 challahs — all made by
Besides challah and light and
dark bread, Mr. Bollag's bakers
make pita bread, farfel, egg cook-
ies, birthday cakes , Black Forest
cakes, strudel, schnecken and
varied Swiss specialties.
A native of Lugano, in the
south of Switzerland, Mr. Bollag
was the manager of a kosher ho-
tel in his home town for 20 years.
Then, in 1981, he had the op-
portunity to buy a kosher bakery
in Zurich. "And I was terribly hes-
itant because a kosher business
is very demanding," he says. But
encouraged by his wife and moth-
er, he decided to go ahead.
"The business was very run
down at that time. There had been
four owners in 10 years," relates
Mr. Bollag. " And it took me one
year of working 18 hour days to
bring it up to standards and to re-
gain the confidence of the clientele."
Those standards are very ex-
acting; the bakery is supervised
by Rabbi Daniel Levy of Zurich's
Orthodox community. "It meets
the highest kashrut standards."
says Mr. Bollag. "It's very strict

strictly kosher, a full 15 percent

his customers are
"I'm very proud of this," says Mr.
Bollag. "A Christian customer
has 100 other alternatives to
choose from, so when they choose
us, that's a source of great pride."
Most of his clients, of course,
are Jewish. They range from Re-
form Jews to Orthodox. Fridays
are particularly busy; that's when
customers line up for the home-
made challah. He's also deluged
with orders for any Jewish holi-
day. Business also gets hectic
when there are special Jewish
events; for instance, this past No-
vember, there was a gala cele-
bration marking the 100th
anniversary of the Swiss B'nai
B'rith, and Mr. Bollag provided
all the pastries for 600 guests.
Wearing his kipah, dashing
from his office to the bakers
Mr. Bollag has his
hand in every aspect of the busi-
ness. He confesses readily that
he doesn't do any baking. But he
still goes out in search for inter-
esting recipes, just as he did
when he first bought the busi-
ness. "Whenever I travel, I look
for recipes," he says, as we come
• back upstairs.
He's as busy as he ever was in
the kosher hotel business. But
Mr. Bollag's not complaining. El
