Milan has always been characterized by a great passion for patisserie. The city of panettone has opened the doors to many pastry chefs, who have brought their art under the Madonnina statue since the nineteenth century. Luxurious historical boutiques and modern, brightly colored patisseries compete over who comes top. Only in this discovery tour of Milanese pastry and bakery, you can try these two, apparently distant, realities which are bonded by the love for high-quality desserts. Here's a list of your possible tastings:
- Cannoncini: a typical dessert of northern Italy and especially of the area between Milan and Novara. In the Milanese Sunday tray, it is the dessert that will never miss. A fragrant, puff pastry, filled with custard or zabaione
- Panettone: the symbol of Milanese bakery tradition. Known throughout Italy and the world, the classic Milanese panettone has raisins and candied fruit. In this tour, you will try the panettone of a historic family bakery, which produces a high-quality artisan panettone since 1967
- Marron glacé: a very ancient dessert, simple, but with a great taste. The marron glacé is a carefully selected chestnut that is immersed for several days initially in water, then in sugar syrup and, finally, glazed, to acquire an inimitable flavour
- Pasticceria pastries: well known and appreciated throughout Italy. It is the custom to bring them to the family Sunday lunch. Of various shapes, sizes and colours, pastry chefs have invented all types and it is precisely from mignon pastry that you can understand the talent and the art spirit of a great chef
- Pralines: are you chocolate lovers? then, you cannot miss the prized Milan pralines: handmade chocolate sweets filled with fruit or other chocolate. Simply irresistible!
