Our Featured Producer:
Gilda's Biscotti

Gilda Doganiero is committed to tradition. At Gilda’s, she adheres to centuries-old Italian methods in the creation of her light, delectable biscotti.

Made from the most wholesome ingredients, including eggs from her own flock of farm hens, Gilda's small batch production ensures the finest, freshest, most authentic biscotti. Hand cut and hand packaged, the light and pleasingly crisp cookies are perfectly paired with coffee, espresso, milk, hot chocolate, tea, and best of all, wine! Gilda’s labels, made from vintage photographs of her namesake Italian grandmother and her father, reflect the homage she pays to her roots as she bakes and cuts in her Salem, NJ, bakery.

Amidst the mid-90s coffee boom, herself enjoying the buzzing excitement and proliferation of European-style coffee shops around Philadelphia, Gilda noticed the lack of authentic biscotti. (She was attuned to its dearth because her previous undertaking as a Vail hotel pastry chef had been to perfect an incredibly light, butterless biscotti that was used to accompany all coffee service.) In 1994, lured by the intoxicating coffee scent streaming from the storefront of Philadelphia’s La Colombe Torrefazione, Gilda entered, met the owners, and departed on a mission to bake them a batch of her chocolate hazelnut biscotti. They were happily convinced, and La Colombe became her first client, bartering espresso for biscotti. As the biscotti’s popularity grew, Gilda knew it was time to leave her job as pastry chef at the Four Seasons and to begin making her artisan biscotti by hand, every day. More than two decades later, the 800 square foot Haddonfield, NJ, apartment in which Gilda’s began has become an ample bakery in a converted 70s barbershop, just two miles from their family farm.
