LAZZARONI | SKU: AMT-107
According to legend, the Cardinal of Milan unexpectedly visited the town of Saronno in Italy. To honor him, two young lovers, Giuseppe and Osolina, quickly baked up a mixture of sugar, apricot kernels, and egg whites, creating crisp, airy cookies with an unusual bittersweet flavor which they wrapped in pairs to symbolize their love. Since 1718, the Lazzaroni family has crafted amaretti cookies according to their family's traditional recipe. Perfect with espresso, dessert wine, and after-dinner liqueurs.
The Lombardy region and its principal city of Milan serve as Italy's art and fashion capital. Spanning over varied landscapes from the Swiss Alps to the Po Valley, Lombard cuisine is appreciably different from its counterparts to the south, featuring buttery and meaty dishes more common to Central Europe than the Mediterranean region.
Housed in an ancient Franciscan monastery near the center of Saronno, Amaretti del Chiostro specializes in traditional products of the Lombardy region — from sweet Amaretto liqueurs to savory Amaretti cookies. Every del Chiostro confection is made with authentic Saronno amaretto by dedicated craftsmen, and we're positive you'll taste the difference in every bite.
