I am suprised that my family's history was only briefly mentioned in this book.
Impallaria's Italian Bakery was the first bakery in Little Italy in Baltimore, MD. My great-grandfather opened a bakery in New York at age 15 when he arrived in America. He then moved to Chicago and opened Impallaria's Bakery there with is first wife. It is still in existence. He then moved to Maryland and opened Impallaria's Bakery in Baltimore with my great-grandmother. That is only the beginning.
I thought it was great because I am currently working on a genealogy report. I saw my grandmother's maiden name Brocato in there. She has told me a bit about it and it was great to read about it the book!
