Why we love it
Cantuccini, also known as cantucci, are twice-baked Italian almond biscuits that originated in the Tuscan city of Prato. Our artisan Chocolate Cantuccini are made with simple ingredients: flour, sugar, eggs, and dark chocolate. The dough is first baked into logs, then sliced and baked again. This process gives the chocolate cantuccini their characteristically dry and crunchy texture.
We all love a good chocolate cantuccini, cantuccini al cioccolato in Italian, and shelves are full of them of all prices, but the difference not only is in the quality of the ingredients but also in the amount of chocolate, ours have over 30% of delicious Italian dark chocolate, way more than any other brand, artisan or not. Just check the ingredients list if you don’t believe us.
Handmade by an historic artisan Florentine "forno" following the original recipe, without the use of palm oil, these chocolate cantuccini are delicious, sweet but not full of sugar and made using only the best and freshest ingredients from real eggs to plenty of the best Italian dark chocolate.
The Tuscan tradition wants cantuccini dunked into a Vin Santo but we believe they can be enjoyed as accompaniment to an afternoon tea or coffee of just as a sweet snack. Delicious
The artisan who made it
Italyabroad.com was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. As soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when grwoing up in Italy.
From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian, artisan producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and artisans.
All our products are authentic and of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment; none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is essential for a long and healthy life. We do not import industrially made products or so called "Italian sounding" food.
Since starting in 2003, Italyabroad.com has been the recipient of several awards.
