Angelina was my maternal grandmother and she taught me how to make traditional Italian biscotti. The photo you see of her to the right was taken when she was just 16 years old and is one of my favorite photos of her, although I know she would disagree!
Over the years I've recognized that although I grew up with my grandmother's traditional biscotti, the licorice bite of the anise seed can be an acquired taste... so in addition to the traditional biscotti, I developed other flavors that do not have the anise seed and I hope you enjoy. In addition to handmade biscotti, I offer several different baked goods. There is a complete, well, almost complete, list of my offerings available to view on the "Our Products" page.
I have held my California Cottage Food Operators Permit for several years now, and obtaining this allows me to bake and sell from my home. My dining room was home to my bakery for many years, but I've recently expanded into the living room! My bakery space is clean, efficient and a beautiful, bright place for me to work. After having used commercial kitchens in the past, obtaining my CFO permit also allows me to be in complete control of my baking environment, which being a bit of a clean freak, is a bonus for me and I believe you too. There are a few photos of the bakery on my "Photos" page, but I am working on posting additional images. I welcome anyone to come in for a bakery "tour" and I do offer tastings of biscotti as I do at the markets I attend.

Well, our Benicia Farmers' Market Season is about to begin and we hope to start it off with an outstanding day! Benicia Mainstreet has me in my usual spot, I am right in front of Java Point and Heritage Pantry and Spice. If you've not yet visited Heritage Pantry and Spice, please do so! Not only are the owner's incredibly nice folks, but their store is loaded with treasures for that special occasion or perfect gift... Hmmm, local handmade biscotti perhaps? Heritage also makes amazing sandwiches, I know, I eat them on market night for dinner! So check them out!
BENICIA FARMERS' MARKET:
Every Thursday from April 26th - October 25th 4-8 pm
This year's events will be posted as days and details get closer...
Thank you for visiting my website, everything you see here I did myself so I must apologize if it appears to be a tad "rustic", because it is!
