by Mia Gatto | Dec 1, 2016

Pasadena, MD – Dolce Mia, a local high-end Italian dessert company, has partnered with Bread and Chocolate, a VA- based company that has produced sophisticated bakery products for 35 years, and also owns 4 cafés in the DC/VA area. This partnership will allow Dolce Mia to have greater capabilities of mass production and expand distribution throughout the MD, DC, and VA area.

“We are on our way to taking the business to the next level with this expanded production. Our focus has gained market share in high-end restaurants and major restaurant groups, upscale grocers, country clubs, and specialty stores/cafés. We are extremely excited to be teaming up with such an amazing company,” says Mia Gatto. “Our unique desserts serve a niche market. The Dolce Mia brand means our products are made fresh and are all-natural and preservative-free; we also use the highest quality ingredients to make your dessert experience unforgettable.”

As the tagline states, Dolce Mia promises, “An Elegant Twist on Sweet Traditions.” Its heavenly cheesecakes are made with hormone-free cream cheese and mascarpone (a specialty Italian cream cheese), which melt in your mouth and come in several flavors and sizes to meet your needs. Its gourmet cannoli filling comes in a variety of exciting “gelato” flavors, using two different specialty ricotta cheeses.

One of Dolce Mia’s biggest accomplishments was having former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice choose one of its desserts to be served during the historic Middle East Peace Conference at the United States Naval Academy in November 2007. Dolce Mia’s Pumpkin Praline cheesecake was proudly served to White House staff and more than 80 world leaders. This world-class cheesecake was then aptly renamed “Condoleezza’s Peacemaker.”
