“How does an artist sculpting works of art from industrial pieces become a baker sculpting dough into the edible art of melt-in-your-mouth breads and croissants?”
Ask Bonfiglio and Bread Bakery owner Gabriele Gulielmetti (Gaby) and he says, “It’s all because of Rachel, her idea and her recipes.” Rachel Sanzone is Gulielmetti’s partner and bakery co-owner. They left Manhattan five years ago – Gaby, his sculpting studio in Brooklyn; Rachel, a history major at Stonybrook, worked on a biodynamic farm, and moved to Hudson in 2010.
Together they opened up this local and cozy bakery located in the Hudson riverside town of Athens, New York. Bonfiglio & Bread LTD makes fresh bread, baked goods, pizza and much more. Their cafe on Second Street in Athens, New York is a newer addition to Greene County but has acquired a loyal following over several years.
