Grandma Toste was born in 1913 in Lynn, Massachusetts to Mario Pustorino and Lucrezia Fattorie. Both her parents were from Calabria, Italy and spoke little to no English but learned the language quickly. They both became citizens and raised Grandma Toste to be a great baker and cook. She loved entertaining and feeding her family and friends with many of her favorite recipes.
After marrying Grandpa Toste, they became the proud owners of the Finesse Bakery in Boston and later a wonderful Italian restaurant in Chicago called Christina’s. Grandma Toste has been sharing the family cannoli filling and cannoli filled cakes since 1940. Grandma Toste’s gourmet dessert products are available at a number of local food markets and grocery stores including Casey’s food store in Naperville and Mariano’s Fresh Markets in the Chicagoland area.
