Colomba is a wonderfully fragrant leavened cake shaped like a dove (Colomba in Italian), the symbol of peace.
They are made by the Fiasconaro brothers in Sicily, for generations a family owned artisan bakery. The 3 brothers who run the bakery now still rigorously uphold the local artisan traditions of their father and grandfather. This is slowfood at its best – each cake taking nearly 4 days to bake!
The brothers use only the best natural ingredients: Avolan almonds, Normandy butter, fresh Sicilian Candied Oranges bathed in aromatic Marsala and Zibibbo wines and the finest Manitoba Durum Wheat flour. Fiasconaro are one of only a handful of bakers who still use a live mother dough (now over 40 years old) and, with the slow leavening process, affords incredible softness and moisture. Wonderful!
There is no other cake like this.
