Panforte margherita is a classic for the holidays. Panforte is a centuries old delicacy of Italy. A wonderful collection of flavors to accompany everything from coffee to wine and cheeses. Panforte is made of fruit, nut and spices. This traditional variety along with others has been made by the Marabissi company for generations in Tuscany. ( See below for more info in our Artisan section.)
The margherita is a true classic variety and was named to honor the Queen of Italy on her visit to Siena. It has citrus fruits, spices, nuts and honey. A wonderful add-on to a cheese board at wine hour. Also wonderful with coffee after dinner!
Celebrity chefs have begun very creative uses for panforte in recipes including using as a base for roasted meats and fowl.
Enjoy a classic at the holidays.
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.
Comes wrapped in paper. Simply slice for serving. Any remaining wrap and store in airtight container.
A Panforte margherita is quite at home on a cheese board. Slice into small wedges or slices for easy snacking alongside a collection of soft and hard cheeses. (A drizzle of balsamic will send it over the top!)
