WE OWE SO MUCH TO OUR PREDECESSORS, OUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS! WE ARE THE FRUIT OF THEIR LABOUR AND PASSION, INGENUITY AND CREATIVITY, THAT HELPED THEM FACE EVERY DAY CHALLENGES.
I can say that our history began after the war, when my grandfather and grandmother, taking a cycling trip for their honeymoon, stopped to have a picnic: there, putting themselves in the hands of destiny, they played amidst their green surroundings, throwing a coin into the air, and the result directed their future course of action leading them to open a bakery instead of a shoe factory: life is also created from this magic!My father and mother also worked at that bakers from a very young age. They were respectively fourteen and twelve when they met and together they enjoyed making scones.
At the time, my Dad became master patissier, and in addition to making bread, he also dedicated himself to making traditional cakes and pastries; sometimes he experimented with new recipes – a curiosity and talent that we have inherited – that our mother also knew how to exploit commercially, presenting these delicacies at the counter as special products, the result of continually evolving traditional skills.
The story, as in all good stories, continued.I, Giovanna and Italo, since little, have breathed the fragrances and flavours of this beautiful craft and together we have continued to develop the family vocation giving life to the BHB “Big House Brothers”.
As was the case with our grandparents, we were also guided by fate; a gamble with two dear friends, Ivano and Achille, and we rose to the challenge. We specialised in the production of sponge cake for industries, becoming an industry leader. Today we boast a strong market presence based on a history of people, fragrances and flavours.
BHB IS DRIVEN BY A YOUNG AND DYNAMIC SPIRIT, ABLE TO ANTICIPATE TRENDS THAT GRADUALLY EMERGE FROM THE EVER-CHANGING WORLD OF SWEET/SAVOURY GOURMET PRODUCTS. A FLEXIBILITY OWED TO THE MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE OF ITS FOUNDERS, AND THAT RELIES ON THE PROFESSIONALISM OF ITS SKILLED EMPLOYEES.
