Biscotti Di Notte & More owner Mirella Trozzo will be back at the Farmer’s Market in Qualicum Beach this Saturday, and she has more than cookies in mind.
Trozzo sold her products at the market for four years, and has been away from the market for two. A poem she wrote towards the end of her four-years at the market, called The Biscotti that took Forever to Bake, will be in a children’s book she is currently working on, along with artwork from fellow Qualicum Beach Farmer’s market vendor and artist Peggy Burkosky. Illustrations will also be done by local artist Elena Trevanut.
A charcoal drawing by Burkosky of Trozzo currently hangs in an exhibition at The Old School House Arts Centre.
Trozzo is also in the process of creating a new biscotti for the Qualicum Farmer’s Market, and she’ll also sell her Italian shortbread, pizzelle and mercato muffins.
