This creamy, tasty speciality arises from a selection of the best Sicilian almonds, originating in the surroundings of the tiny village of Avola. Energizing and with anti-inflammatory properties. Almonds are one of the principal ingredients in Sicilian pastry-making; from the marzipan-based frutta martorana to the ever-present confetti with which Sicilian families celebrate important occasions.


Pale cream in colour with delicious, sweet almond aromas. Intense in flavour, with a soft, smooth and creamy texture and a long, lingering aftertaste.

ORIGIN

 

Brought to Sicily by the Greeks, almonds found an ideal habitat along the coastal hills at the foot of the Iblei Mountains, near Avola, in the Province of Syracuse. Here the climatic conditions and the nature of the calcareous soils guarantee the production of exceptional almonds, considered by many to be the most valued in the world.

MISE EN PLACE

 

Serving instructions: After removing from freezer, let sit for a few minutes before serving.

 

Serving techniques: In a cup, cone or brioche (a special round, fluffy, typically Sicilian bread that is often overhung with the classic “tuppo” or “cozzo”: irresistible with gelato or whipped cream). We suggest using the appropriate spatula or a kitchen spoon to serve. Avoid serving in little balls.
