Short pastry flower-shaped biscuits – can you imagine anything thing simpler and tastier?

If you like discovering old villages, a must is a visit to Torriglia in Val Trebbia, which will surprise you with its Canestrelli, six-point short pastry flowers, friable and sweet, excellent at any time of the day!

The recipe of the Torriglia Canestrelli, or “canestrelletti” over the centuries has wisely been handed down to make it possible to provide the natural tastes of the past.
Every spring in May, the Festival “Dö Canestrelletto Torreggia” is held: along the main streets the historic bakeries in the town let you taste the famous biscuits. You can try them and stock up with them to eat them at any time of the day.
