Kitchen accidents happen now and again. But the results aren’t always burnt food or inedible concoctions. Take a look at the humble beginnings of 5 food items now enjoyed worldwide:
1. Chocolate Chip Cookies
The delicious cookie recipe came about in 1930, when Ruth Wakefield, ownder of Toll House Inn substituted baking chocolate with smashed pieces of semi-sweet chocolate bar for the cookies she was baking. The result was a scrumptious batch of cookies with chunks of chocolate that soon became a hit in the Whitman, Massachusetts area.

Did you know that this frozen treat has been around since 1905? As the story goes, Frank Epperson was making a soda water mixture. He accidentally left the mixture on the back porch overnight, with the stirring stick still in the container. Epperson was amazed to find the frozen soda water on a stick that he shared his creation with his friends. These days, popsicles come in so many formulations. But perhaps the best thing about it is that we all can make them at home!
Since we started in 2006, we always get asked “Why handmade?” and “What makes your brownies so delicious?”
Dello Mano has stood the test of time. And we know that it’s our clients, who share the same passion for excellence as we do, that really have helped to get us to where we are now. Today though, we thought it might be fitting to let you in on a few of our secrets.
1. Handmade with love
To us “Dello Mano” is more than just an Italian translation for “of the hand”. It means the magic of careful craftsmanship, ingenuity and dedication to quality. Each product that comes out of the Dello Mano kitchen is a reflection of our values, our commitment to creat nothing but our best.
We take pride in coming up with our own special recipes, handpicking what goes into the treats and wrapping them up perfectly. The whole team–every single member of the Dello Mano family is responsible for bringing to you each flavorful bite.
From the flavor and recipe development, to cooking and baking and up to the moment you open the elegant packages–we keep the promise of excellence you can taste.
2. Premium quality ingredients
Only the finest, freshest ingredients go into Dello Mano products. The base of luxury brownies for instance, make use of Redland Bay free-range eggs, the highest-quality Belgian chocolate, and Australian butter (from grass-fed cattle).
Here in Dello Mano, we love art as much as we love baking. And we make sure to incorporate it in everything we do. For us, art is creating something with love and passion. It is putting hard work and commitment to develop a masterpiece. It is selecting the best ingredients, paying attention to details, and being consistent in terms of quality.
So you got your box of Dello Mano luxury brownies? Awesome. But before you go all the way to unwrapping and indulging in those delicious chunks of heaven, give yourself just a few moments (you can do it!). While they are good as they are, do you know that there are more fun and enjoyable ways to eat Dello Mano brownies?
