Description

The panforte is a typical sweet Senese, Christmas cake par excellence, has very ancient origins: the first written records date back to the year one thousand.
The preparation of the Panforte was entrusted to the Art of Medici and Speziali of Siena and was intended exclusively for the nobles, the rich and the clergy in consideration of the fact that it contained, in addition to the orange, cedar and melon, almonds, drugs and very expensive spices for those times.
The scent of honey and the strong smell of spices make this Christmas cake unique: the secret to making panforte is the selection of ingredients, which must be of quality, from fresh and crunchy almonds to candied fruit, to millefiori honey.
We can find two variations of this dessert, Panforte Margherita and Panpepato.
