A little about us...
SNickelFritz Kitchens loves the flavours and traditions of Waterloo County and surrounding areas. Our roots trace to Pennsylvania Dutch, Austrian and Hungarian traditions and we strive to honour our present and past through our food.
It is important to us to maintain our community and our earth. We use recycled and reused containers as much as possible in our packaging and daily practice.
snickelfritz (noun): an endearing term for a mischievous child, a little trouble-maker
Our name, 'SNickelFritz Kitchens" is inspired by a playful nickname my Great Uncle Herb liked to use. He had a sweet twinkle in his eye and a gentle laugh when he said it. He and my Aunt Lili lived in a beautiful old house in Preston that always smelled like fresh baking and perked coffee. Aunt Lili (pronounced Lie-la) always had something homemade ready for a snack. Both were local to Cambridge and both remain in my heart. My name is a tribute to them and the feeling of warmth and love bestowed by them… with a little spark of humour.
My twist? My first name is Sandy, last name is Nickel. I have been SNickel@ since email was born and was given that moniker by friends. I would not be able to focus on baking and business without my husband Adrian – he is my Fritz.
I couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for my Kitchen.
With much love,
