The History Behind Your Favorite Stadium Snacks

What is Hearth Bread?

Popularized in Old World Europe, hearth bread uses traditional baking methods to produce a delicious, yet unique loaf of bread each time. At Cellone’s, we make both hearth baked bread and pan baked bread. Gary Cellone, partner at Cellone’s Bakery, describes the difference as this: “authentic hearth baked bread is baked on the hearth of the oven with no pan, which gives it an irregular shape, while pan bread is made in a pan.” Since...

The History of the Sandwich

When you’re hungry, sometimes a sandwich can be exactly what you need. From the heartiness of the bread, to the protein and delicious toppings in-between, it’s no wonder why sandwiches are one of the most popular lunch choices today. It’s hard to imagine a life without sandwiches, but their popularity wasn’t always so present. According to history, the sandwich we know and love today was created in 1762 in England. Most food historians agree that the...

Cellone’s Bread: Baked with Family Traditions

During the holidays, members of the Cellone family get together to tell stories of past years, remember our history and enjoy each other’s company. With three generations currently working and managing the bakery there is no shortage of memories. The third generation vaguely remembers the founders who in 1911 bought a small house in Bridgeville, PA. The two brothers, Raffaele and Antonio, emigrated from Torino, Italy with less than $50 dollars between the two of...

Cellones Sausage Stuffing

Thanksgiving with the Cellone’s

Cellone’s Italian American Thanksgiving dinner always had two traditions, the American meal and the Italian. Growing up there was always a big dish of lasagna alongside Italian sausage served on Cellone’s Sub Cluster Rolls.
