Chef Flemming's BakeShop
Chef Flemming's Bake Shop has been a fixture on Henderson's Water Street long before the area's recent revitalization efforts. The two-room shop charms with a hand-painted mural and the recipes of Flemming Pedersen, who's been perfecting his craft for 50 years and was an executive pastry chef for casinos like the Tropicana and Aladdin. The bakery is influenced by the chef's own Danish heritage with kringles, skoleboller, and other items in especially strong supply on "Scandinavia Day" (the first Saturday of the month). Overall, chef Flemming's makes a point to have something for everyone, including a daily featured bread Wednesday-Saturday. His regular danish has been modified a bit for American preferences, but a more traditional (crisp and flaky) version can be custom ordered by the box. The same dense pumpernickel used for sandwiches in Denmark is also usually available by request.
