This week we’re daydreaming of escaping to beautiful Italy! A place where they value and celebrate all aspects of life. From taking time to eat and drink well, to spending time with family.
One of the many delicious foods they’re known for is biscotti – with the Italian cookie tracing its origins back to Roman Times, we’ve been told it’s best enjoyed as an accompaniment to cappuccino or with Vin Santo (a style of Italian dessert wine).
So what is the history of biscotti? Well, Roman biscotti was more about convenience food for travelers rather than a pleasurable treat! These finger-shaped wafers were baked first to cook them, then a second time to completely dry them out, making them durable for travel and nourishment for long journeys!
When we came across modern-day Tutti Gourmet Biscotti, from the picturesque town of Hudson, Quebec, we had a feeling we were on to something delicious! A company that is committed to creating flavours that amaze, they wanted to bring truth to the word “Tutti”, the Italian word for “Everyone”.
Enjoy the delicate crunch of this gluten-free, allergen-friendly, non-dairy, soy, corn, or wheat snack! Choose from two delicious flavours:
