Cesare Valsesia founded the business in the early 1900s, after taking over the family's food shop in Borgomanero. A passion for bread inspired him to specialize in baked goods, and he expanded the business after the post-WW II period. Today MastroCesare is managed by Marco Valsesia, who carries on the founder's respect for traditional knowledge with dedication and skill. Their specialty is breadsticks, which are offered in an array of variations, from the classics to versions with walnuts, rosemary, onion, olives and so on. Delicious biscuits, bread and cakes are produced as well.
