This is Sweet Elena

Sweet Elena Baking

ELENA is not only a phenomenal friend that I enjoy speaking Italian with but a very creative artist. She brings old-world charm to the table with passion and “Gusto.”

Elena opened her bakery in Sand City in 1992. Before opening her bakery, she worked as a pastry chef for over fourteen years at the Ventana in Big Sur. Her artisan bakery prides itself on making everything from scratch and sources many of her ingredients locally. You can find our pursuing the local farmer’s markets where she supports local farmers and vendors.

Elena has created an incredibly delicious GRANOLA, and it is sweetened with AMEN BEE STAR THISTLE HONEY. You also must try her TRADITIONAL PAN FORTE. This special Italian cake is perfect for the holidays and will be a memorable treat for the whole family.

To learn more about Elena and her bakery, watch the below video produced by Your Town TV, or visit her website at www.sweetelenas.com.
