Boasting the highest quality meats and spices, Bianco’s Italian sausage has stood the test of time. The recipe has not changed a lick in almost 55 years of production. Joseph Jr. would never share their secrets either: “No way, it’s a family recipe.” The smell alone brings me ...

Tutto Italiano owner Angelo Locilento


“If you love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life,” says Angelo Locilento as he somewhat reluctantly leaves his post at the counter of Tutto Italiano, where long lines of customers from all races, ages and walks of life wait to be served either some special product directly imported from Italy or some freshly made in-store treat. “Look! This is a fully functioning bakery that just finished making bread for the day,” he points out as we pass through the yeast-and-flour scented facility to his office. After a careful look I see what he means. The ...

Henry Zunino: Sculptor at Heart, Candyman by Profession

Henry Zunino holds up one of his prized chocolate tablets.

Imagine a lobster on a stick: not a real one, but rather a small crustacean-shaped lollipop to take home as a souvenir of a trip to Boston, or — why not — after a real Lobster dinner with your kids. The lobster-shaped treat is not mass produced in China for some giant corporation, but rather crafted and created by local sculptor Henry Zunino, a self-made entrepreneur in his self-made artisanal laboratory in Everett, Massachusetts, where his company Strawberry Hill Candy started in 2009. The company’s flagship product, the Lobster (individual claws are also available), is really only one of many ...
