Product Description

Available from November 1 - December 31
The Carmela brand is a speciality line by Assenti's Pasta.

Panforte is a dense and chewy, nut and dried fruit cake with chocolate, spices and citrus. This classic dessert dates back to the 13th century in the Italian region of Tuscany. The literal translation of panforte means "strong bread."

Our panforte is in the style of a panpepato panforte. We absolutely love this traditional Italian treat, it’s one of our favorite holiday party tricks to share with friends and family. It’s incredibly long shelf life (6-8 month refrigerated) makes it an easy go to dessert to bust out.

It’s not too sweet, with just the right amount of holiday spices that pleases everyone, it’s just right.

We love it with espresso in the afternoon as a mid day pick me up or in the evening with a port or a full flavored red wine like an Amorone. It's the perfect way to cure a small sweet tooth craving and it makes for a lovely holiday gift.

We use simple whole food ingredients and a medieval cooking method to create our panforte. We first toast and chop hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts, we slice figs, dates and raisins, add holiday inspired spices, add coco powder, flour, orange zest, sherry, and almond extract, and finally add Belgium chocolate and honey. We add our mixture to molds, use a specialized pressing method, bake and let the flavors marry for two days to ensure a proper density and maximum flavor incorporation.

A vegan friendly/gluten free verison is available.

This is a seasonal product.
