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 were proud owners of the Finesse Bakery in Boston and later a wonderful Italian restaurant in Chicago called
Christina's. Grandma and Grandpa were also very proud of their three daughters who also helped and worked in the restaurant.
Now their children have her wonderful recipes to share with you.
