To create this mouth-wateringly delicious dolce, we have combined three of our favourite things: pasta, hazelnuts and chocolate. Whilst hazelnuts can now be found growing around the world, the finest nuts of this variety come from Piedmont in the far north-western corner of Italy. This Alpine region is known for its premium nocciole (hazelnuts) amongst other luxury produce. The valleys of Piedmont are filled with hazelnut groves; stretching for many miles, you can see row upon row of well-pruned trees laden with nutty treasures. These tasty morsels have been used in traditional cuisine for hundreds of years and are a vital component in delights such as Torta di Nocciole.
Cioccolato has equal stature in Piedmont, where gifted chocolatiers have been honing their craft for centuries. Indeed, in the early twentieth century Pietro Ferrero patented a divinely inspired recipe where ‘tonda gentile’ (small and sweet) hazelnuts, found around Alba, were blended with cocoa to form a supremely smooth variety of chocolate. And more recently his son, Giovanni Ferrero, transformed this into a chocolate-hazelnut paste, Nutella, which has taken the world by storm. We have turned to this classic pairing in our beautiful retelling of a Piemontese culinary tradition. Our fresh triangoli parcels encase a smooth, chocolatey filling which will transport you to Turin, which we think is home to the world’s finest cioccolato. Fried in burro (butter) and topped with a sprinkling of hazelnuts, this glorious dish may well have been sent by Edesia - the Roman goddess of feasting - herself.
