Just like the Travels of Marco Polo took us on a journey around the world, so has the Pastry Chef from Costabissara, Vicenza, with his new exotic varieties of Veneziana: “Apricot & Spices” and “Chocolate & Spices”.
Featuring ingredients such as vanilla from Madagascar (a Slow Food Presidium), prized black pepper, turmeric from Asia, Tonka beans from South America and choice single-origin cocoas, these new sweet breads are a tribute to the Most Serene Republic of Venice and its seven centuries of peoples, cultures and tastes.
Equally special is the packaging, which includes 6 new tin boxes by “Sonia Design” featuring images that evoke the atmosphere of the Venetian lagoon, of lavish traditions and magnificent architecture. The images are taken from historical postcards now on display at the Loison Museum.
The two varieties of Veneziana will be introduced to the public at Vinitaly for an early celebration of the upcoming 80th anniversary of Loison’s sweet taste
