Carlo’s Bakery, the setting of the hit TLC series Cake Boss has announced it will open a third location in Westfield, NJ.

“After my first visit to Westfield, I knew I wanted Carlo’s here,” said Buddy Valastro, owner of Carlo’s Bakery, also known as the “Cake Boss. “This is a very exciting time for Carlo’s Bakery as we expand to our second location outside of Hoboken. We are thrilled to be joining the Westfield community.”

“I always love getting my fans and customers involved. The Cake Bar allows everybody to create their own custom cake, watch it come to life right in front of their eyes and enjoy a more personal experience at the bakery.”

The bakery will be located at 21 East Broad Street, a short walk from the Westfield train station.  The bakery will occupy 2,100 square feet, and is expected to open later this year.

Amy Currie and her Secrets of a Home Cook, is bringing her talents to Vita's Kitchen

You could say that Amy Currie is curiously obsessive about cooking, eating and just about anything that has to do with food. This Summit Mom and cook extraordinaire, credits her grandmother with her passion for cooking who she says at a young age "mesmerized her with pearls of cooking wisdom which tumbled out of her mouth as eloquently as the ones she wore around her neck." Amy learned a lot of secrets in her Grandmother's kitchen like how to roast a chicken (nudge whole, unpeeled garlic cloves underneath), to how to make chicken soup (because nothing was wasted), to perfect pie crust (add ground nuts), and light as air cake (don't overbeat).
