Meet the actor-turned-baker-biscotti from Thunder Bay
Faced with a tight job market during the pandemic, Taylor Green went from acting to starting a business based on her mother’s popular biscotti recipe.
Founded in September 2020, the Sleeping Giant Biscotti company produces a North American-style biscotti, a twice-baked cookie designed to be dipped in a drink. It’s slightly sweeter than its Italian counterpart and available in a variety of non-traditional flavors, including a version of Thunder Bay’s beloved Persian.
