Sicilian Traditional Candies

Posted on

Caffè Sicilia nougats are a stellar creation by pastry legend Corrado Assenza. Nothing beats the texture of a soft Sicilian torrone. It’s slightly chewy at first, giving way to a silky mouthfeel as the luscious honey melts in your mouth. Then, the crunchy bite of Sicilian pistachios of Bronte or almonds of Noto strikes you.

These are jewels of the Sicilian holiday pastry tradition, an elegant combination of just a few of the best raw ingredients found on the island.

Place Caffè Sicilia torrone on your holiday table and the party won’t stop carving it. Or send them to your Chef’s Table obsessed friends + fam: they probably have watched the episode about Corrado and Caffè Sicilia on Netflix more than once!
