Angela will also be sadly missed by her remaining siblings Luigia and Antonietta and her many nieces and nephews.

elevated vcdPl Angela came to Canada in the 1950’s with her husband and a passion to cook. If you asked her what the secret ingredient to her cooking was, she would reply, “cucinare con la fantasia.” She was one of the pioneers in Italian catering as an immigrant woman in Toronto, and when her businesses began to take off, she capitalized on the opportunity to open her own banquet hall, La Gioconda and was admired for her authentic Italian cuisine for over four decades.
