Sweet Santangelo’s

Last month I attended the Boston Wine Expo. Although I loved trying wines from different vineyards around the world, I loved visiting the food vendors just as much. One vendor of particular note was Sweet Santangelo’s, which is located in Woburn, Massachusetts.sweet santangelo

As I browsed the food vendors, Sweet Santangelo’s made an exceptional impression. Based on sight alone, I needed to sample some of these treats. After trying two pastries I could attest that not only did they have a beautiful display of baked goods, but that these treats made from family recipes were delicious.

The two goodies that I nibbled were very different. Auntie Rosie’s Anise Frosted were perfectly sweet and tender. They would make a wonderful dessert with a cup of coffee or tea. The other pastry I enjoyed was the Parmesan-Rosemary Biscotti. This crunchy baked good was savory and would complement a salad or cup of soup quite nicely.

Recently, I contacted Mary Ellen Santangelo, who with husband Ray runs this bakery. She shared the following information with me:

How old is your company?

We started the business in September 2006.

You currently have 15 different pastries. How many did you have when you first started? Do you plan on adding more items?

We had 13 different cookies when we started and added two more for the wine show, our Ray’s Chocolate Brownie cookie and our Parmesan-Rosemary Biscotti. We also offer a cherry-walnut holiday cake, banana bread cake and Irish soda bread. I have many more family recipes, which I plan to gradually introduce. We want to offer our customers the sweets they enjoy. We have many favorites, such as our Auntie Rosie’s Anise Frosted, our Sweetheart Linzers and our Macaroons.

I noticed that you sell items at a local farm and will ship to customers in Massachusetts. Will you be expanding your delivery area in the near future?

We deliver locally and ship regionally. We are in the beginning stages of shipping nation-wide and also finding a store-front cafe which we can offer our baked goods in an intimate Italian setting.

If you are looking for delectable, homemade baked goods, visit Sweet Santangelo’s. Their pastries are some of the best I have had.
