In 1880, Francesco Bonajuto, following in his father Frederico's footsteps, opened a small cake shop in the picturesque, baroque setting of Modica. From his shop, he brought forth exquisite cakes of Arabian and Spanish origin, the fruit of centuries-long traditions, earning acclaim and appreciation from the townspeople.
Bonajuto continued to create sweets with meticulous passion for years, hoping to preserve the art that he had grown up with, and of which he had become such an outstanding master.
Today, he would certainly be satisfied to know that the 'Dolceria' is still in the place where he founded it, and that it represents a fundamental reference point for the culinary tradition to which he was so closely bound.
To know the products of the Antica Dolceria Bonajuto is to know an infinity of flavours unknown to most -- ancient flavours unchanged by the passing of time.
