Company: Danile - Sicilian Pastry - Pistacchio and Almond
“DANILE” is the history of a family scenting of freshly baked almond and pistachios pastries. The name also evokes Jasmine, the fragrant plant during flowering. Every morning Giuseppe, his wife and their sons, produce “sweetness”. At that very moment, almonds and pistachios produced in Sicily are selected, roughly crumbled in a crusher and added together with sugar, egg white, orange peel and other secret and natural ingredients. Skilful hands knead the dough and let it rise for a certain time. This process originates “pastry” (a special sweet mixture, which is hand-shaped one by one). A journey of the palate starts at last! Crispness and softness of almond and pistachios pastries give off mild and sweet scent of dried fruit; icing sugar enhances the taste, thus making it more exquisite. Moreover, the presence of Mediterranean citrus sublimates these small gems of Sicilian deliciousness.
