Meet the Chefs… Benjamin Copeland of Bettini and Roxana Bar

Benjamin Copeland, Pastry Chef

Benjamin Copeland’s path to Harbor

international detour in 2013 that shaped his approach to the kitchen and life.
Armed with a wealth of early career experience, Copeland headed to Hanoi as a

Cape & Island Bakes

Sweet E’s Cupcakes worth a trip to MV!

Recently I had the fun of going to Sweet E’s Cupcakes in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard.  I do hope they will one day participate in Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer but then again, I hope every restaurant, bakery and café in Massachusetts will participate in an event so close to my heart and so easy to do. But in the meantime let me tell you about how I fell in love with Sweet E’s!
