Panforte is a flat, dense cake created in Siena, Italy during the
medieval era. Flavored with dried fruits, nuts, honey, citrus zests and
a variety of spices, these cakes have a long shelf life and a rich,
complex flavor that satisfies with only a tiny slice. Indeed, they are
so nutrient and energy dense that they were used as travel rations by
Italian soldiers during the Crusades.
Torta al Cioccolato (aka Chocolate Panforte) is an unusual panforte
coated with a chocolate glaze. Inside, the cake has the rich, luxurious
flavor of candied cherries, chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg, blended
with hints of citrus.
This panforte di Siena is produced by Pasticceria Marabissi, a third
generation family-run pastry business in Chianciano Terme (Province of
Siena) that is considered the most prestigious producer of true Panforte
di Siena in Italy. Marabissi is committed to making each of their
panforte cakes by hand using traditional methods and the finest Italian
ingredients. Their panforte has won many national awards.
Note: Under the outer packaging, the bottoms of panforte are
traditionally wrapped in wafer paper (aka "rice paper" although not
always rice) to keep them from sticking. This does not need to be pulled
off of the cake prior to consumption…it is edible!
