Frankie’s Biscotti are made from the original Old World Italian recipe handed down for many generations. It is the authentic wine-dipping cookie originally used at village weddings and made popular by Christopher Columbus. As profiled on the Food Channel, Frankie’s dough is created from the finest, most natural and purest ingredients, some of which are imported from the Mamone family farm in Calabria, Italy. Frankie uses the same spiritual and loving predisposition of the Italian nona (grandma) in his baking, instantly reminding us of a day gone by. Years ago, Beatrice Albanese, from the Palermo line of Bakers, collaborated with the Mamone Family to enhance the Biscotti’s appealing artesian look, rich, unique flavor, and softness that is seen no where else in the market. Taste tests have proven time and time again that there is no comparison. As Frankie says, he will put his product up against any Biscotti in the world for authenticity, flavor and quality.
