In a modest kitchen in an apartment on the lower east side of Manhattan I learned to love to cook and bake. What made it so special was that I was at my mom's side.
Growing up in an Italian family, food was part of almost every conversation. The planning, the shopping, the preparation and most important, the sharing and enjoying. It brings people together. It creates connections and bonds. For me, the best part was dessert, sweets of any kind.
The world of cake and cookies has changed a lot since I was 4 years old. Ingredients, techniques and styles have come a long way. A cake, a cookie favor for a wedding or cupcakes for the class party can all be tailored to your specific wants and needs. That customization is at the heart of what we do at Mangia.
