Tutto Bene Bakery
My name is Anna Lia Notardonato. I am the proprietor and baker/chef of Tutto Bene. I was born and raised in the Apennine village of Pizzone, in the Molise region of Central Italy. Molisanis are well known for tenaciously preserving our ancient traditions. To this end, I assembled many treasured old Notardonato family recipes and created Tutto Bene.
Tutto Bene specializes in homemade bakery items. All products are made from the finest ingredients, without preservatives or artificial additives of any kind.
The recipe for the unique Tender Biscotti has been in my family for over fifty years. I obtained the recipe from my Grandma Liberata and I still bake them one batch at a time; they are all cut by hand and no two are alike.
Other Tutto Bene products include mother Nina’s Wine Pretzels; made with white wine, great munchies anytime (perfect served as palate cleansers during wine tastings). Mom’s most scrumptious contribution is Lemon Cream Tea Cake: crusty on the outside and tender on the inside, with a hint of lemon, Papa Domenico calls them “the friend makers”– everyone who tastes them becomes a friend!
Other Tutto Bene confections came from grandmother Ersilia Mancini. Mamma Ersilia was our “experimental” baker–she constantly challenged culinary rules to create exciting new taste treats. Promise, you will love the results!
You are invited to enjoy some of the goodies that have been passed down through generations of Notardonatos and which Tutto Bene now bakes with loving care especially for you.
