Some emotions cannot be described,they just have to be experienced

Brusa pasticceria Paste di Meliga. Traditionally, there were a few ways the Piemontesi enjoyed these biscotti, the most wonderful (in my opintion) is serving them with creamy, freshly whipped up zabaione, and/or a glass of moscato d’Asti or dolcetto for dessert. Similar to the more robust Tuscan biscotti, you usually dunk them in the wine before eating them. There’s a story that Cavour finished every meal with biscotti di meliga dipped in barolo chinato.The recipe for biscotti di meliga (melia or meliga is just the Piemontese name for polenta), more commonly found in a ridged ring shape made by piping the dough through a star-shaped tip rather than rolling it, is one born out of poor times – the price of wheat flour had gone up, so bakers substituted the cheaper polenta, ground very finely, for a portion of the wheat flour. It makes for a wonderfully short, delicate biscuit with good crunch. Tray in plastic material classified APET (PET 01).

Serving suggestions: perfect with a cup of Tea, an expresso or dipped in barolo chinato.

Ingredients: "00" soft wheat flour, butter (25%), corn flour (22%), sugar, eggs, honey (3.8%), egg yolk, baking powder (sodium carbonate, wheat starch), salt, natural flavors. Allergens: may contain almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios and other nuts.

Storage: store in a cool, dry place. Once opened store in an airtight container. Having an important quantity of butter we recommend keeping them in the refrigerator to improve their shelf-life and their sensorial characteristics.

Editor's note: I asked myself if the emotions had a colour, a taste, a perfume, and if I could see them. I wanted to understand if emotions could be frozen in time. I met Roberto, spokesman for a pastry-shop of emotions. Made painstakingly with the Heart and Soul, the creations that I propose were borne out of a personal desire for a tangible experience, but have started to take on a life of their own. ... 'Nothing new is needed in this world at all, but if you’re going to make something new, then make something that somebody really wants. If we can start making and promoting things in a different way and supporting others that do it, then we have a chance to make change happen. It’s so magical.'

Perfect pairing

Inspired by centuries of extraordinary adventures.
