Solodko is a Ukrainian bakery in the heart of Brighton founded by Boston College student Ilona Znakharchuk and her sister Irina. Meaning “sweet” in Ukrainian, Solodko is known for beautifully intricate cakes and best-selling macarons. To make their multicolored cookies, the Solodko sisters use the Italian method, where egg whites are whipped and then boiling sugar syrup is added to stabilize the meringue. (In the French method, plain sugar is used in place of the syrup.) These delicate confections are available daily in flavors like chocolate-caramel and raspberry.
