Baci di Cherasco
A Piedmont Delicacy with Hazelnuts and Chocolate.
In almost every small town in northern Italy there is a biscuit or chocolate that goes by the name “Baci di ...”, i.e. “kisses from ...”. Worthy of attention is the following delicacy from the small Piedmontese town of Cherasco. Its basis: hazelnuts from the variety “Tonda Gentile delle Langhe” (i.e. the “round noble [nut] from the Langhe region”), the highly aromatic queen of hazelnuts. The manufacturer applies a gentle roasting process in wood-fired ovens; then the hazelnuts are coarsely crushed and mixed with exquisitely tasting bitter chocolate, flavoured with a little vanilla. The resulting chocolate delicacies taste intensely of hazelnuts, cocoa and a little of coffee. They come from the “Confetteria e Pasticcheria Barbero”, founded in 1881. Barbero, still located in Cherasco, has the chocolates handmade and passionately produced according to the traditional Piedmontese art of confectionery.
Piedmont. The landscape of hazelnuts
The diversity of northern Italian Piedmont includes the Langhe, in the south of which lies the province of Asti, dominated by the city of Alba, while regional wines such as Barolo, Barbera and Barbaresco are grown on the rolling hills of the Bassa Langa (lower Langhe). The Alta Langa (upper Langhe), with its more pronounced heights and harsher climate, proves ideal for the cultivation of hazelnuts. So then the autochthonous variety 'Tonda Gentile delle Langhe' is now considered the best in the world, not only by connoisseurs, appreciated for its beautiful large and round shape and excellent smell and taste before and especially after roasting.
