The gooey goodness that is panforte has a rich history in Italy. According to tradition, 17 ingredients go into this sweet, spiced pane for it to be authentic--and Marabissi does just that. Candied oranges, citrus peels, almonds, hazelnuts, and a mix of spices are marinated in warm honey and baked till perfection is reached--the dusting of sugar doesn't hurt either.
Panforte is best served sliced and warmed with a cup of espresso, or after dinner with a glass of port. Pair with a softer Morbier and slightly more firm Pecorino Locatelli for a festive spin on your cheese plate.
Marabissi is one of Italy’s most famous bakeries and home to Siena’s most prized exports, panforte. Marabissi’s all-natural ingredients and dedication to traditional cooking are what set their panforte above the rest. Made in the region since medieval times, there’s nothing more authentically Tuscan than a sweet cake from Marabissi.
