The Chocolate Way in Italy
Italy’s age old lands are rich in flavour, knowledge, monuments and art. The ancient recipes which have been perfected over thousands of years are deeply rooted in each region and over time have become the expression of those who have always lived here. Knowledge increased with the passing of millennia as agriculture gave rise to the typical products which are characteristic to and identify these lands. The key to the success of Italian culinary lies in its continuing ability to blend extraordinary local products into the fine flavours that date back to time immemorial.
The same holds true for the time honored recipes of traditional Italian chocolate-making: they are the result of perfect blending of the extraordinary products grown in the various areas. This is why it is difficult to call Italian Chocolates merely “chocolate”, just like it would be unthinkable to try to group all Italian coking under the single label of ‘Italian Cuisine’. From the moment cacao came into being, five tundra ago, each region has taken this fine ingredient and made it their own, infusing it with ancient flavours and using their special expertise to give birth to unique creation imbued with the experiences and History in which they are rooted.
