Traditional Sicilian hard nougat with pistachios
The Hard Pistachio Nougat by Bacco is an acknowledgement of the importance of torrone preparation in Sicilian traditional food culture, in which, at every religious or town feast, “torronari” used to make their specialities in huge rekindled casseroles, with almonds and pistachios, honey and sugar. Torrone was then laid on marble tables and cut with knives. Only simple ingredients and no preservatives for a 100% artisan-made nougat
Soft nougat with Bronte pistachios.
The "Gran Cru" bars of Torrone were born after meticulous research of the best raw materials and a long series of tests. We studied and drew inspiration from the different cultures and philosophies of artisan torrone production. This type is the most exotic, clearly inspired by the Sicilian torrone and thus using all raw materials from the region, in particular, Bronte pistachios. Pistachio trees were brought in by the arabs, and Bronte pistachios have been an essential ingredient in many Sicilian desserts ever since - the only place in the country where they\'re actually grown. Its namesake, the city of Bronte, is perched at the top of slope of volcanic rock which is about half a mile northeast of Etna. This nougat consists of 60% Bronte pistachios with Etna orange honey and a sprinkling of Sicilian orange skin peel, all flavoured with a little essential lemon oil and natural vanilla from Madagascar.
Soft nougat with Piedmontese hazelnuts.
The "Gran Cru" bars of Torrone were born after meticulous research of the best raw materials and a long series of tests. We studied and drew inspiration from the different cultures and philosophies of artisan torrone production. Traditionally, this type of torrone comes from a lot closer to home, and has a much more crumbly texture than its nougat counterparts. This is required for Piedmontese tradition, as are the Piedmont hazelnuts from the company\'s hometown area of area of Mombercelli d\'Asti have been mixed with acacia honey from Masio. In comparison to our traditional recipe, we have replaced Millefiori honey and removed glucose and as flavouring, we used natural vanilla from Madagascar.
