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

While panforte has evolved into many forms over the centuries, the panpepato is thought to be the closest to the original medieval recipe. Made with dried and candied fruit, almonds, and just enough flour to hold it together, the cake is sweetened with honey. Panpepato gets its spicy flavor from the healthy dose of spices such as cinnimon, nutmeg, cloves, mace & corriander.

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.
