From Sorelle Nurzia, this elegant yellow paper is hand-wrapped around a bar of soft chocolate nougat studded with Abruzzese hazelnuts.
Located in L’Aquila in the Abruzzo region of Italy, Sorelle Nurzia was founded in 1835 by Gennaro Nurzia. Gennaro was an experienced distiller and decided to expand his expertise into the realm of confectionery. A turning point for the company came under the stewardship of Gennaro's grandson, Ulisse Nurzia. Ulisse expanded the company's product range and aggressively experimented with new recipes. Until his day, torrone had been a hard candy. However, after much experimentation, Ulisse revolutionized torrone production with the introduction of soft nougat infused with chocolate.
5) Modica Chocolate by Corallo
A must try for chocolate lovers!! A step back in time and chocolate history. The chocolate of Modica is made in small batches following an Aztec recipe brought over by the conquistadors hundreds of years ago in the town of Modica, Sicilia.
Originally known as “xocóatl”, a product that the people of Mexico obtained from cocoa beans crushed on a stone called “metate”, which released the cocoa butter and obtain a grainy paste.
The process was taught to locals in Modica, without passing to the industrial stage. In cold processing, the cocoa does not pass through the phase of conching: the cocoa paste is processed at 40° with added granulated sugar; failing to melt or blend, the sugar gives the chocolate of Modica the characteristic “rough” appearance of the grainy texture. It is made today the same way it has been made for centuries. Enjoy a unique and decadent chocolate experience.
