After two decades of working in various bakeries, Mister Henry was finally able to realize his dream, and open his own shop, Henry’s Bakery. It soon became a local hit. After Hurricane Katrina flooded the building, Mister Henry wondered whether or not he should re-open. But he couldn’t keep from baking.
When he finally re-opened, people lined up down the block. Today, people are still lined up, eager to taste a unique mix of innovation, tradition and Mister Henry’s love — king cakes for Carnival Season, raison squares and, perhaps most beloved of all, buttermilk drops.
