Klara Sotonova hails from Chrast, a village of 5,000, two hours southeast of the historic Czech capital city, Prague. At age 19, Klara emigrated to the U.S., with the dream of owning her own business – one that honored her family’s long tradition of home-baked, traditional Eastern European sweets.

In 2009, Klara settled her business in the small New England town of Lee, Mass., where she has been sharing her family traditions ever since – with you, her retail customers, and as a wholesaler to grocery stores and specialty retailers around the country. Using natural, organic, non-GMO ingredients wherever possible, Klara’s Gourmet brings pure, authentic flavors to her family heirloom of sweets.
