Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, Anders Karlsson learned the art of baking the staples of daily European life - breads, pastries and croissants. Once mastered, he took his talent to America, adapting beloved Swedish recipes for an American audience.
Youna Karlsson grew up in Antwerp, Belgium, learning the ins-and-outs of retail by working under the tutelage of her parents in a family-owned business. She moved to the United States during the late 1980s.
The couple met and married, moved to Sweden where Anders taught Youna the art of baking danish and fine pastries. They traveled to many European and American cities, visiting bakeries and restaurants, attending baking shows and classes in decorating techniques to further their knowledge in the field of baking.
They returned to California, and in 1991 purchased a small, struggling bakery named Berolina.
24 years later, Berolina is a thriving member of the local community. With Anders overseeing the nightshift bakers and Youna coordinating the day shift, Berolina is able to meet the demands of a clientele that have come to expect the highest quality baked goods from their friendly local European bakery.
