Cheap Eat of the Week: Italian cookies from King West’s newest bakery, Forno Cultura

Recently opened on King West beneath Wvrst, Forno Cultura brings its authentic Italian bakery concept to the city. The bakery is led by Andrea Mastrandrea, who previously provided goods to Alimento Fine Food Emporium (which has since closed, and is now Cibo Wine Bar).

Boasting a lineage of third generation Italian bakers, most of the bakery is taken up by a kitchen where you can watch pastry cooks at work. The result: savoury and sweet baked goods from pizza to breadsticks, along with a cache of Italian cookies.

Paired especially well with a quick coffee or espresso, don’t miss out on Forno Cultura’s biscotti or amaretti cookies before you head back out on your way down King West.

Forno Cultura, 609 King St. W., 416-603-8305
