Rita has baked bread and desserts in her A&L Bakery, East Boston for 37 years. She’s from Avellino, Italy near Naples, and her friend Nina is also from the same Italian area. They became best friends in their Boston neighborhood and after 30 plus years, still go to church together.

Nina stopped in to buy bread and I loved hearing them talk in their English-Italian ways. How about this long loaf of bread which is popular for parties. You can order an 8 ft long loaf for Super Bowl!
