The Marabassi family has been crafting panforte and other delicacies for three generations. Jola Marabissi opened the first shop in 1948, just after the war. They have brought tradional recipes for biscuits and assorted cakes and of course panforte to our tables . The emphasis on quality is to be rivaled.
Panforte has a myriad of serving suggestions. The Margherita is wonderful with cheese, perhaps some balsamic and wine. The chocolate is perfect with coffee or port wine after dinner. The fig & walnut is a perfect mate to blue cheese and a hearty wine, and perhaps a few extra walnuts on the side. Chefs have even used a slice as a base for roast poultry presentations .
