Angelina Bakery adds summer-inspired items to menu
New York City’s Angelina Bakery, which specializes in Italian treats, has introduced a cool treat to beat the summer heat, the Italian-inspired Gelato.
Inspired by the taste of Angelina Bakery’s other iconic treats, the thick and creamy Gelato is offered in flavors including chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, lemon, yogurt and strawberry.
Angelina Bakery owner Tony Park, who is of Korean descent but was born in Palermo, Italy and raised from a young age by an Italian family, pays homage to his Italian grandmother, Giuliana “Anna”, who taught him how to cook and bake as well as his daughter, Angelina.
The bakery reflects the authentic Italian pastry of his youth, but with an Asian twist. The bombolone, an Italian donut, known to be on the heavier side featuring Bavarian cream is updated with a lighter Asian influenced recipe.
Angelina Bakery currently has two NYC locations, with a Times Square flagship set to open in the city this summer.
