THE ONLY THING RICHER THAN THE TASTE AND TEXTURE OF OUR LASAGNAS, IS OUR HISTORY.

MAMA MAKES IT EASY FOR YOU TO #SHOPLOCAL

Hamilton is home - It's where we first made our lasagna at Carmen's Bakery & Deli back in 1978, and where we still produce all of our  gourmet lasagnas. Made in Hamilton and delivered all over Ontario; purchasing one of Mama's lasagnas supports a local business with deep roots in our community.
