While in Germany, I connected again, with the few relatives that are still in Italy. My cousin is married to the owner of the oldest confett company, in Sulmona. For the holiday season, we flew in a few of their spectacular creations, and some of the boxed confetti. There are also a few boxes of tenerelli. Here is the description of them:
Tenerelli are a variety of confetti wherein the almond is covered by a layer of flavoured, white chocolate. The many available flavours range from all the fruits to creamy coffee, cappuccino and gianduja (hazelnut).In addition, many types of Pelino Tenerelli are made with a refined ‘double layer’ technique of which allows the consumer to enjoy two different types of chocolate; thus giving the product an unsurpassed appeal.
And of course, no holiday display would be complete without the Bonci cakes. The 750 gms and the Tronchetto are out, with a few new items from the Bonci line. The elves have been busy decorating the store with the chocolates from Torino, and we are just waiting for the Spanish goodies. That shipment was delayed because of the high temperatures this year in Spain. There is Turron plus spreadable chocolate, dark or white with added liquers and fruit. Imagine that for dessert over the holidays with a fruit platter. Simplicity itself...
We pre-ordered some different cheese for the holidays...they should be in next week, so basically we are all prepped for our Saturday openings. There are 3 Saturdays this year: December 5, 12 & 19. come out and meet the staff, if you haven't already, sample the buffet, see the new products, let us spoil you.
Warm holiday wishes from all of us, Anna Marie, Irvin, Rob, Tony & Rocco!
