Baci al Cacoa – Hazelnut & Cacoa Butter Biscuits with Dark Chocolate Filling, 350g
Traditional Piemontese hazelnut and cocoa butter biscuits with a dark chocolate filling. The addition of cocoa brings a whole other level of chocolatiness to these delightful biscuits.
Baci di Dama means “Lady’s Kisses” – each biscuit is baked then cooled, piped with the chocolate filling one side, then lovingly “kissed” together every single time by hand. Then placed, one by one, into the jar.
Moving away from the cities, Piedmont is known for its connection to the Alps. Almost half of the region is covered by mountains, making it one of Italy’s top skiing destinations. The geography of the region generates great agricultural farm land and it is best known for its grapes and wine production. Barolo and Barbaresco red wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape, and the sparkling Asti Spumante comes from the Moscato grape.
Besides wine, the region also produces a vast amount of Italian risotto rice. Arborio, Carnaroli and 11 other varieties of rice are grown in paddy fields, irrigated by river water.
