Bonnie Tempesta is no stranger to making biscotti.
After all, you might recognize her surname from the La Tempesta biscotti company she started in the 1980s, then sold in 1997, but not before it became the largest biscotti bakery in the United States.
You just can’t keep a woman away from biscotti for long, though, especially one with a Tuscan heritage.
Tempesta is back making the twice-baked Italian cookies for her new company, Boncora in Sonoma.
The name is a mashup of “Bonnie” and “ancora,” which means “encore” in Italian.
