I’ll never forget the first time I met Melissa Roiter of Yummy Mummy Brownies. It was many years ago on a sunny Sunday at the SoWa Farmers Market. And while I wasn’t much of a Brownie or Chocolate person, that all changed when I tasted one of her delicious treats. Salted Caramel for me, please.
Much has happened since that magical day, including the addition of her AWEsome gluten-free brownies. But probably most exciting for her, is the opening of a brick and mortar bakery in Westborough, Ma, named, of course, Yummy Mummy Bakery. Ain’t life grand?!
Melissa comes from a family of great cooks. Her brownie recipe is passed down from her Grandmother Irene. Her Mother was a Caterer, and her Aunt, a Chocolatier … and I recall Melissa telling me a story about a Grandfather being in a photo at one of those great bakeries on Water Street in Worcester - and if you don’t know Water Street, shame on you! After years of baking for friends and family, she made the leap on Mother’s Day 1997 and a business – and brownie superstar – was born.
When they'll be here: Every Sunday!
