Le Neole 150 g

€4.20

Typical pastry from Abruzzo made with a production process that has not changed over the centuries, which involves the use of ferro for cooking, an essential double-slabbed and slightly hollow tool, which gives the Neole their peculiar rhombus-shaped look. Every family used to have a ferro and, as a proof of its importance, it was part of the bride’s inventory. In many cases, the central part of this tool had the family’s coat of arms, therefore when the bride was giving her Neole, the coat of arms of her own ferro represented a proper signature. Nowadays, there are plenty of versions of this speciality, even though they must traditionally be crispy, thin and with anise seeds, just the way Rustichella d’Abruzzo proposes it. According to tradition, cooking time must equal the duration of the Ave Maria on one side and the Lord’s Prayer on the other. You can try it with a bit of powdered sugar and cinnamon or stuffed with Rustichella “Sclucchiata di uva Montepulciano d’Abruzzo”. Its refined packaging can be created only by those who have a great passion for tradition.

Zunza with anise 300 g

€14.90

Available soon.

Anise is the ingredient that is never missing in Abruzzo desserts. Tradition has passed on its use in the doughs of ciambelloni, ferratelle and even combined with coffee. La Zunza is an artisanal sweet anise with genuine products like eggs, sugar and flour. The term "Zunza" is most likely to be connected to a root of the Arabic language, filtered by the Spanish dialects, which links the word to the concept of nectar. The characteristic flavor is given by the contrast between the sweetness of the dough and the freshness of anise. Outside the Zunza is covered with almonds. Excellent with creams, sweet wines and liqueurs.
