President's Message


I guess spring couldn't have come soon enough for us bakers. With the bad weather behind us, we can now focus on the spring season and the upcoming holidays that are around the corner. Easter and Passover are always a busy holiday's for us, we bake many types of special baked  goods.


To celebrate the arrival of spring, I am going to share with you one of favorite formulas for coconut macaroons. These can be dipped/covered in chocolate, or garnished with a glazed cherry.


Even though we are a full year away from it, on March 18th and 19th of 2012 we will be having our EXPO in Atlantic City. The Expo committee is working very hard to make this show the best it has ever been. We hope that you will put it on your calendars and be a part of this premier baking show event.


Happy Baking,


President Joe Gifoli
