Artisan Biscotti, Cookies & Sweets.
Growing up, some of my fondest memories are of my mother, my grandmother and my family gathered together in the kitchen, baking cookies and making fresh pasta. I so vividly recall the sweet aroma of fresh vanilla, anise and cinnamon combined with the laughter and joy that we shared. My family always showed affection by lovingly and preparing foods that were baked from the heart... true soul food. I looked forward to every special occasion, holiday & celebration with excitement as I learned a new recipe that always had a special story and memory attached to it. Even our simple, but very important traditional "Sunday Dinner" was a special occasion. Although a simple & casual family meal, it was still another opportunity to gather and create magic in the kitchen. I always felt loved, cared for and comforted when we were together, and I have a special place in my heart for these memories that will last my entire lifetime.
In 2006, I decided to follow my bliss of baking and became the executive Pastry Chef for my father's Fine dining restaurant, Il Capriccio located in Whippany, NJ. My father, an award winning Chef, taught me the importance of excellence, and service with the highest standards. His love & dedication for creating experiences for his guests always inspired me. I found my purpose.... or, shall we say, my purpose found me. I wanted to re-create all of my most beloved experiences & memories that I had growing up with others, and by doing so with the "best of the best" service.
When I bake for you, I offer you comfort, joy & bliss with each bite. I feel that life has so many moments to celebrate, and a cookie that is baked by hand, and from the heart with loving intention is the "sugar" for the soul. Whether you are celebrating a wedding, office promotion or birthday with cookie platters or gifts, I promise to offer sweets that will create special memories for you and your loved ones- just like mine. Even more simple moments.... a quiet evening at home, curled up in a warm blanket with a cup of hot tea & double chocolate biscotti, celebrate an act of self care. My personal favorite... watching my mom share a hot chocolate and some lemon cookies with her grandchildren-- celebrating special time with "Nonna".
Family, food , fun & fulfillment combined with sugar, spice and everything nice are some of the many the ingredients for a sweet life;) My mission is to nourish your soul and to satisfy every craving for sweetness, love and blissful experiences in every bite.
I bake my gourmet biscotti and cookies from scratch daily in small batches in order to ensure optimal flavor & texture. I use premium ingredients like Vahlrona Chocolate, Organic flour, real butter, pure Madagascar vanilla and the finest, imported nuts. I never use any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives; always GMO free and allergen compliant for those who have special needs. I use Organic eggs from my father's farm in Branchville, NJ as well as many other ingredients in support of small , local businesses and local farms. You can rest assured that your family's health is paramount.
