Delicious soft Tuscan amaretti made with stone-ground rice flour, sweet and bitter almonds, honey and stiffly whipped egg whites. They are produced by Ghiott in Florence following an ancient traditional Tuscan recipe.
Ghiott's amaretti have a decidedly artisan look typical to Tuscany and are based on a 50 year old recipe by Florentine maestro Enzo Salaorni.
The quality of the ingredients is outstanding and belies such a low price tag. They provide distinct layers of taste. The initial sweet almond flavour gives way to the rich depth of stone-ground rice followed by a long bitter-sweet finale with a hint of orange.
These soft amaretti are perfect served with tea or coffee as a rewarding break or try with a glass of dessert wine after a meal.
Arborio rice is the most famous and most common variety of Italian rice. It is renowned for its high starch content, great for creamy risottos and its large rounded grain that keeps its shape well during cooking and provides a more al dente taste and texture. Arborio is versatile enough to combine beautifully with any kind of dish but is especially suited as a base for risotto.
This is a Superior Category Arborio rice (the highest quality) cultivated in the famous rice growing area of Vercelli, Piedmont.
