The Jucker family has been baking for five generations and almost 200 years. The family started baking in Chrzanow, Poland in a building where, it is said, Napoleon spent the night. Three Brothers Bakery in Houston still uses the family’s original eastern European recipes for rye bread, challah (egg bread), Danish, cheese pockets, kaiser rolls, bialis, traditional bagels, onion boards and onion pockets. Three Brothers Bakery is known for its gingerbread recipe and specialty cakes.
Husband and wife Bobby and Janice Jucker are the co-owners of Three Brothers Bakery. Janice is a breast cancer survivor. October is breast cancer awareness month and Janice and Bobby are participating in awareness programs, including the Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure. Janice Jucker tells FOX 26 News reporter Ruben Dominguez about the bakery while Chef Bobby shows food radio talk show host Cleverley Stone how to make a pink ribbon cake from petit fours.
