I'm Aunt Anna &
this is my story...
Growing up in an Italian immigrant family, my Grandma Gigliotti would proudly give me one of her hard, dry, crumbly licorice-tasting cookies that she called Biscotti. I quickly developed an aversion to them as I found myself dreaming of delicious, warm out of the oven, chocolate chip cookies that other grandmas would give their grandchildren.
Many years later as the Coffee Revolution was brewing, my husband and I purchased an espresso machine for our Italian restaurant. Needing a treat to go along with it, I recalled the biscotti of my youth and vowed to make one that wouldn't break your teeth and that would actually taste good!
It took me weeks of baking and batch after batch (after batch) to perfect my recipe. Our patrons took to the biscotti immediately, and as word spread, I outgrew my home bakery and moved into empty basement space at the restaurant. From these humble beginnings, Aunt Anna’s Biscotti is now in hundreds of coffee shops and specialty stores!
The name “Aunt Anna’s” comes from being an aunt to 5 nieces, 5 nephews, 8 great nieces, and 8 great nephews (and counting), some of whom were test testers in the early 1990s and all of whom enjoy eating my biscotti today.
Inspiration comes from unexpected places...
Grandma Gigliotti would be proud.
