Sweet (and Savoury) Somethings

GRAND OPENING MID-MAY! / By Rodelinde Albrecht

ungry for something special? Here’s great news for those who find themselves in Lee, MA, at breakfast, lunch, or snack time! Livia Landry, proprietor of Sweet and Savoury on Main in Stockbridge for more than three years, now offers her delectable creations in Lee. The grand opening of Sweet and Savoury on Main at 56 Main Street in Lee (the former site of the Cakewalk Cafe) is scheduled for mid-May. Sweet and Savoury will continue as a boutique bake shop, with all goodies baked from scratch, by hand, from locally sourced ingredients without the use of preservatives, additives, pesticides, and dyes; wheat-free and grain-free items are also available. Livia bakes the way your grandmother did, with care and consideration, creating wholesome, nourishing food. “Good baking is not to be hurried,” says Livia; she cuts the butter into the flour by hand, not with a machine! Enter the welcoming, comforting, yet sophisticated premises of Sweet and Savoury on Main in Lee and make yourself at home. In the morning (starting at 7:30), indulge yourself with breakfast sandwiches. For lunch, try Livia’s panini or her savoury hand pies stuffed with portobello mushrooms, caramelized shallots, and fontina or with sundried tomato, roasted garlic, and artichoke

hearts. Mmmmm! My mouth is watering just thinking about these. Livia also offers locally made soups at lunchtime. And when your sweet tooth starts acting up, treat yourself to pound cake or coffee cake or – one of Livia’s specialties – Mexican chocolate pumpkin seed cake. Smaller, locally handmade confections are also on offer, including sweet and salty caramels, and modjeskas (marshmallows dipped in chocolate or caramel). You can wash down your meal or treat with locally sourced coffee and espresso, Harney & Sons tea, or a cold beverage. Here’s more good news, especially for you doughnut fans: John and Debbie Scalia will be making their handcut Home Sweet Home Doughnuts specifically for Livia’s Sweet and Savoury on Main in Lee. Livia prides herself on using the finest available ingredients sourced locally from family-run businesses. The quality of the ingredients is manifest in the quality of the finished products. Sweet and Savoury on Main offers a discount to active military as well as to veterans.
