Lady’s Kisses. Italian delicacies from Piemonte

Lady’s Kisses… what a romantic name for cookies, don’t you think?

Piemonte perhaps is one the sweetest and most and desirable region in Italy.

The marvelous Gianduja chocolate invented in Torino in 1861

and several kinds of typical cookies http://www.gamberorosso.it/en/news/english-food-news/piemonte-told-in-12-traditional-biscotti-plus-a-recipe-for-baci-di-dama-by-the-gallizioli-bakery/

created all over the land, make it an irresistable temptation!

Speaking of biscuits, today I am glad to introduce you one of the most famous -and one of my favourite- called ‘Baci di Dama‘ (Lady’s Kisses in English).

As you see, the romantic allure of Piemonte it’s also written in its typical products…

The name of these lovely ‘Baci di Dama’ was chosen because due to the two biscuit parts being paired together to resemble lips about to kiss.
A chocolate filling joins the two almost shortbread-like buttery biscuits, which are slightly crispy from the hazelnuts for a unique treat.

They’re especially good eaten alongside an espresso, therefore, during our can’t miss Chocolate Tour https://ieatfoodtours.co.uk/tour/chocolate-tour/ we’ll let you taste not just an espresso but simply one of a kind in a very unique location… and the best Lady’s kisses in town!

However, Lady’s kisses pair nicely also with a good cup of tea, like the rooibos Gianduja.

If you are a tea&chocolate lover (like me) and you love to collect nice boxes, you can easily shop online the rooibos chocolate tea from Maritea. Visit the site and have fun…There is so much to choose and the Xmas boxes are too lovely to resist!

The name of this city is of course Torino.
