Why we love it
The Panforte is a traditional Tuscan cake, initially the Tuscan response to the "northern" panettone at Christmas, now made and eaten all year round. The name Panforte, strong bread in Italian, derives from the strong spicy flavour.
Artisanally made using only the best and freshest ingredients without the use of palm oil from a Florentine "forno" following the original recipe, this panforte is 100% natural and contains more than 30% of almonds, together with candied oranges and lemons: panforte doesn't get any better than this.
Often paired with a glass of Vin Santo after a meal, or enjoyed with a coffee or tea, Panforte is a delicious cake that can be enjoyed any time of the day and like for the panettone, the difference between artisan and industrial panforte is in the quality and quantity of ingredients.
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.
