Out and About: Maria Eberle
Maria Eberle is the founder of OneSong Biscotti. The company was started in January of 2016. OneSong can be contacted via online at www.onesongbiscotti.com or be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/OneSongBiscotti, or be phoned at 860-712-5288. They specialize in hand crafted biscotti, lovingly baked using the freshest ingredients and do so in small batches out of a commercial kitchen in East Hartford.

Maria was born and raised in both Hartford and Windsor. She graduated from Windsor High School in 1970 before attending St. Francis School of Nursing. She had worked as a Nurse Case Manager, helping those with workers comp injuries. All the while, she continues to maintain the biscotti business. In 2008, she graduated from a 4-year energy medicine program, where she then started working per diem and part-time at St. Francis in their Integrative Medicine department. A year later Maria left the Nurse Case Management. She now specifically works with Integrative Medicine part-time. She says, "The school is actually what got me interested in running a business. They had a business course for people that wanted to go into energy medicine work on their own. Part of the course was, 'so what are your one year goals? What are your five-year goals? Whether you're starting a business or not? Where do you see yourself?' And they encouraged us not to think logically, just to what is your gut feeling about this? I found myself from my five-year goal writing; I'm going to start a business baking and selling biscotti. I reread it and wondered, where did that come from?" Thinking about it, Maria told herself, "This is what I want to be doing."

In making her thought a reality, she got in touch with legendary baker, David Glass. When she brought him some biscotti, she wondered what he thought. He told her, "Oh, these will sell." David gave her advice and it grew from there.

Baking biscotti came from Maria's love of cooking from her very Italian grandmother, Nonna and in part her mother as well. As she puts it, "I love to cook. Love to bake. Love to feed people." It was her passion for biscotti that led to experimenting. Nonna never baked them, but made fabulous cookies.

The name OneSong comes from the holistic meaning of "the one song of the universe." Being part of that whole. When it comes to her business, Maria often finds herself at headquarters in East Hartford baking biscotti for five to seven hours. But to her and because she's in the flow, that time feels like only minutes. Although not made in Windsor, products are sold at 226 The Bean, the Farmers' Market, The Beanery, Scotty's Breakfast in Wallingford, and through the company's website. In all, there are nine flavors that are a mix of sweet and savory. They range from Chocolate Chip Walnut to an alluring Bourbon Maple Pecan, to the enchanting Rose Water Cardamon Pistachio. Aside from these main staples on the menu, seasonal flavors pop up when the time comes. (You never know if Pumpkin Spice might debut.) Besides customers personal tastes, biscotti is popular for gift giving such as birthdays, holidays, weddings, bridal, and baby events among others. Packaging is available for such occasions.

Maria says she and her husband, Terrry love Windsor. They had moved away for a few years, but returned to raise their children here. "It's small enough that you feel like there's real neighborhoods here. Big enough that you don't feel you have to go twenty miles for a grocery store." She is a member of the Chamber of Commerce. Maria notes she likes to frequent places like Union St. Tavern, Dom's, and 226 The Bean and The Beanery.

Three words that describe Maria: Caring. Passionate. Integrity.
