Di Camillo Bakery
We are very proud to be carrying a full line Di Camillo products, a family run bakery with humble beginnings in Niagra Falls, New York delivering bread to neighbors in horse-drawn wagons. Di Camillo is still family run, into their fourth generation.
In their own words: “Every product of the Di Camillo Baking Company derives from our family heritage, from our traditions, from our belief that exquisite foods lovingly prepared are not only an art form, but also an expression of life—reminders of past celebrations, heralds of celebrations to come.”
Their long success is owed in part to their dedication to making classic Italian cookies and confection without lowering their standards one iota. Our first introduction to Di Camillo was through their Biscotti di Vino over twenty years ago, and it continues to be one of our best selling products in our shop and our wine gift baskets. This barely sweet crunchy biscuit, made with red wine and topped with sesame seeds, is always a best seller when served at the tastings we hold in our shop. Long time clients now just enter and ask, “Are you serving those biscuits?” We’ve tried imitators, but they don’t come close to the taste of the real thing.
The pride they have in their product is on display in the packaging as well. Ornate tins and boxes make an aesthetic centerpiece in a gift basket or as a stand alone gift. Their hamper is one of our most popular cookie gift baskets. They certainly get noticed, which is what you want your gift to do. The tins live on long after the cookies are devoured.
At Fancifull we are driven to find authentic, wholesome foods created by artisans. This is why we delight in bringing you Di Camillo Bakery products.
