Having been blessed with generations of great traditions and amazing women in their family, Claudia, Norma, and Estefanie are delighted to bring a piece of their culture and recipes to you in their candies, pastries, and spices.
The 3 of them, originally from El Salvador, migrated to the United States in the early 90’s. They have always felt an extreme attachment to their beloved El Salvador and all it’s traditions. The chief Mamita, Mami Norma, always had a lifelong dream of opening her own ‘dulceria.’ She remembers her mom, Angelina Ortega, baking with her grandmother, Mamá Fita, in her hometown of La Herradura and distinctly recalls their bread being known as the ‘finest’ bread in town. On special occasions, Mamá Fita would make her famous candies alongside her sister, Tia Concha.
Now, with the help of her daughters Claudia Sofia and Norma Estefanie, that dream is becoming a reality.
Claudia Sofia, the eldest daughter, graduated from the University of Southern California in 2003 and has always dreamt of owning her own business and being part of her adored Salvadorian community. After working in corporate America for many years, she decided to follow her passion of business, food, and her community and start Mamita’s Delights. She, alongside her sister Norma Estefanie, have also created memories of their own with their grandmother, Mamá Lucy. She always makes sure to spoil her ‘Mamitas’ every chance she gets with her delicious, home-made dishes that are impossible to recreate. Her secret- the unique spice blends that make every dish simply unforgettable!
The memories created from making candy with Mamá Fita, the secret techniques that have been passed from generation to generation, and their impeccable attention to detail, have brought them to where they are today and has enabled them to now share these delicacies with you.
Their candies, alfajores, and spices have been well accepted by people from all backgrounds. The three of them are very grateful for the warm welcome their community has given them and look forward to introducing many more delights to their line of products.
