Italian Artisan Bakery Selection

This indulgent selection of artisanal Italian sweet treats are all made in the Cascina Barroero bakery in Cortemilia. Stefano Barroero's father was a pastry chef, and handed down to him the tricks and secrets of the trade. Stefano wanted to take this one step further though, and produce the raw ingredients he used in his sweet creations. He and his wife grow their own hazelnuts in Cortemilia in the Langhe region of Piedmont, Italy. Piedmontese hazelnuts are regarded as the best in the world, producing a hazelnut with a unique, delicate flavour. Stefano's hazelnuts are slowly roasted at a low temperature to preserve all their nutritional properties and their full flavour.

The selection will arrive carefully packed in a recylable box with eco-friendly padding, and would make a beautiful gift for someone with a sweet tooth as well as an indulgent treat for your family or a delicious choice for a social occasion.

L'Altra Torta (a moist and more-ish, brownie-like traditional Piedmontese cake)

Barroero's 'L'altra Torta' (meaning 'other cake') is indeed a cake like no other. Its a delicious brownie-like cake, handmade from delicious hazelnut paste and dark chocolate without flour. You have to try this melt in the mouth treat! Stefano Barroero's father was a pastry chef, and handed down to him the tricks and secrets of the trade. Stefano wanted to take this one step further though, and produce the raw ingredients he used in his sweet creations. When he and his wife moved to Cortemilia in the Langhe region of Piedmont, Italy, which is famous for its hazelnuts, he started growing his own nuts and turning them into sweets. Piedmontese hazelnuts are regarded as the best in the world, and the trees of the Langhe region produce a hazelnut with a unique, delicate flavour. Stefano's hazelnuts are slowly roasted over a long period of time at a low temperature to preserve all their nutritional properties and their full flavour.

Biscotti Gianduja (mini chocolate and hazelnut traditional Piedmontese 'cookies')

Stefano Barroero's handmade mini-biscuits are a delicious example of the traditional 'gianduja' flavour of Piedmont, Italy, and are perfect for teatime, or if you are feeling really indulgent they would be great for breakfast too! Gianduja is a blend of cocoa and hazelnut, which originates from the creative work of a nineteenth century Piedmontese chocolatier, who mixed local hazelnuts into his chocolate during a national cocoa shortage.

These irresistible sweet bites have a 'melt-in-the-mouth' texture and are perfect as an accompaniment to a morning cappuccino or espresso, or as an indulgent after-dinner treat.
