Panforte Margherita

Regional selection: 
Toscana, Umbria
Panforti and Torroni

Panforte is a traditional cake from the Tuscan city of Siena. Its history dates back to medieval times when new spices were introduced by traders arriving from the east. Dense, flavorful, and sweet, panforte makes a satisfying treat. Its long shelf life made it a favored snack of crusaders. While traditionally eaten as a dessert, panforte makes a wonderful pairing with a wide variety of cheeses

The panforte margherita, named for Queen Margherita di Savoia, is a more modern take on the classic recipe. Cooked for a shorter time that the original, the candied fruit remains in tact lending a brighter, freshed flavor to the rich sweet. Coated with a dusting of white powdered sugar, panforte margherita is elegant version of the classic pastry.

All of our panforte is made by Pastiecceria Marabissi, a family run business now in its third generation. Located in the town of Chianciano Terme, Marabissi has been handcrafting panforte and other sweets for over 60 years.
