Angelo
"Grandpa" Casali
was born in the small town of Licata, Sicily on Oct. 10, 1910.  He started working as an apprentice at a local bakery at the age of 9, and developed a passion for the pastry profession. Throughout the years Grandpa became progressively more successful and decided to finally open up a shop of his own after he returned from the war in 1946.  His bakery became the most extravagant bakery the town had ever seen.
    
In 1958, Grandpa decided to visit his brother Vincenzo in the U.S. and immediately fell in love with New York.  Soon after arriving, Grandpa began his first job in N.Y. at Ferrara Café in Little Italy, where he ultimately became the Head Baker.  Training many of his fellow bakers on Long Island, Grandpa soon became known as "Toscano" (because of his family's history).
    His passion, knowledge and high-standards were passed to his own... his son Angelo, and nephew Giuseppe (Joe).  Today Angelo and Giuseppe (Joe) are the proud owners of A & G Bakery.  With two locations on Long Island, they adhere to using only the best and purest ingredients.  Still, today the pastries are baked from Grandpa's original recipes and are made from scratch... including one of our best... the Cannoli shells!

Excerpt from article:

     "...For most of us, even when on a diet, we find it hard to resist the taste of fresh bakery goods. Enjoying a cream cannoli, or having a slice of fresh rye bread is a good enough reason for me to cheat!  So when your sweet tooth kicks in, A & G Bakery is the place to be!
     A&G Bakery is the quintessential dessert place that encompasses all of the finer qualities one could want in a classic pastry shop.  It's located in Huntington, and has an assortment of scrumptious breads, cookies, and pastries to choose from.  Their desserts are AMAZING, they always have lines out the door, so make sure to get there early.  As you enter A&G Bakery, the aroma of homemade cookies and fresh out of the oven bread will make your mouth water.  You will be impressed by the wide variety of desserts and pastries they carry.  They have a great selection of cakes, cookies, pastries, and cannolies.  For their weight watcher customers, they carry no-sugar added pastries and cookies that are so delicious, you would never know that they are the guiltless variety.  A&G Bakery specializes in cakes for all occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and graduations.  They also provide cookie trays and pastry platters that are beautifully assembled for any social gathering..."
