Clara Tin with Original Recipe Cantucci Biscuits 500g

£21.50 GBP

1858. This is the year Antonio Mattei created his personal recipe, a variant on an already popular biscuit in the northern part of Italy. Known worldwide with the name of Cantucci, or cantuccini, they are not your usual biscuit: the almonds and pine nuts make them crunchy, not too sweet, loved by all.

The best way to experience these Antonio Mattei cantuccini is at the end of a meal, with a small glass of sweet wine, like Passito or Vin Santo, tea or coffee. Summer or Winter, morning or evening, with a hot or cold beverage, they are always a great way to pause, and indulge on the moment.

The Clara tin is designed by florentine illustrators Simone Massoni and Ilaria Falorsi.

Producer Learn more about who made this product.

In the centre of Prato, Tuscany, you can find a little shop that has been opened since 1858. Every morning before 10am, using the original recipe Antonio Mattei personally created, cantucci come out of the oven and the entire via Ricasoli smells like biscuits.

They first appeared on the International scene at the 1867 Universal Exposition (World Expo) in Paris, becoming popular all over Europe. Today, the Pandolfini family looks after the brand with the same care and love its original creator intended, allowing us to bring the original cantuccini di Prato to your tables.
