The four hour festival has grown since it was introduced a few years ago in 2016. It initially started as a way to showcase local bakeries and get people downtown. Now, it’s a popular event the entire city looks forward to every year that attracts visitors and bakers from beyond Leominster.

    Can’t wait!

    When I was in Sicily, I visited Maria Grammatico’s bakery in Erice which is known as perhaps the best bakery in Italy (which is saying something). Maria was raised in a convent orphanage where she learned (stole) the secrets of the nuns’ old recipes which she still uses. I bought a shopping bag full of pastries (Sfincia di San Giuseppe, Minne di Sant’Agata, etc.) and the two of us ate pastries for our next 4 meals.

    Read “Bitter Almonds” by Mary Taylor Simeti, a biography.
