Two Great Bend High School graduates now living in Chicago, Ill., can be seen next week on cable television’s Travel Channel.
Chelsea Kalberloh-Jackson (GBHS Class of 1993) and her husband Art Jackson are owners of Pleasant House Bakery, a bakery/cafe located in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. Their specialty is British food, including savory handmade Royal Pies made like the ones in England.
Chelsea’s brother Morgan Kalberloh (GBHS Class of ’95) moved to Chicago after finishing his mater’s degree at Florida State University. He now has greenhouses in the metropolis and grows the herbs and vegetables used at the bakery.
Since Pleasant House Bakery opened in 2011, it has received a lot of attention. Now the segment “Pot Pie Paradise” will air on an upcoming episode of the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise,” tentatively scheduled for broadcast at 9 p.m. local time on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Morgan and Chelsea still have relatives in Great Bend, including their mother, Patty Kalberloh, and grandfather, Irvin Felke.
Pleasant House is also the name of an actual house in Yorkshire, England, that Art Jackson’s grandfather fixed up and where Jackson’s father was born.
Chelsea is a graduate of Northwestern University and now works for the Illinois Institute of Technology as well as the bakery.
