Delicious. Classic Almond Biscuits
The recipe for these delicious cantucci was brought by the sisters from their native Italy when they founded the convent. This classic almond rusk can be eaten on many occasions.
A New Monastery above the Vltava.
For historical reasons, there are only very few monasteries in the Czech Republic today. However, two promising new foundations buck the trend: the Trappist monastery in Nový Dvůr and, since 2008, the Trappist Sisters’ monastery of Naší Paní nad Vltavou (Our Lady of the Vltava), south of Prague. For founding a new community on the plateau above the Vltava, the sisters had to leave their convent in Vitorchiano – as you may recall: some of our jams come from the Italian monastery. Meanwhile, several young women have joined the convent, so it is liable to reckon that the new foundation will grow and flourish. The sisters have established a bakery to provide for their livelihood. Fortunately, they decided to work according to traditional Italian recipes brought along from their former home.
