I MOVED TO SAN FRANCISCO FROM LUCCA, ITALY after winning the green card lottery in 2009. I STARTED WORKING AS A BARISTA AND HAD BEEN DREAMING ABOUT the BOMBOLONI FOOD TRUCK THAT WAS
AT my sChool WHEN I WAS A KID. I REACHED OUT to THE OWNER
(WHO STILL REMEMBERED ME AS ONE OF HIS BEST CUSTOMERS.) i
told him my dream about bringing a little taste of LUCCA BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO and he WAS HAPPY to teach me HOW TO MAKE
his classic Bomboloni, Cannoli and Frati. when i got back to sf,
I STARTED MAKING THEM FOR MY FRIENDS. FROM THERE, IT QUICKLY
BECAME A BUSINESS AND I STARTED MY COMPANY LE BONTA ITALIANE in 2011. SINCE THEN, MY FRIENDS STARTED CALLING ME MR. BOMBOLONI AND IT SOON BECAME MY NICKNAME AND LOGO. in 2015 my girlfriend and I had the idea of making them bite size and putting them on a stick in a cone. hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I do.
