The origins of Gianduja (pronounced jan-DOO-yah) go back to 1861 when after rationing of Cocoa during the turbulent years following the Napoleonic wars, a cash-strapped Italian government increased import taxes on certain goods including cocoa beans, threatening the livelihoods of many Italian chocolatiers. Ever resourceful, artisans from the Piemonte region began to try recipes with a higher proportion of local ingredients, including the famous Piemontese hazelnuts IGP and, realizing it was the perfect match, Gianduia was born!
Take delicious Piemontese IGP hazelnuts, add a little cocoa and Luca's confectionery passion for superb quality, and the result is this exquisite Cocoa and Hazelnut Cream. Spread it on a slice of bread for an indulgent snack or add it to your next homemade dessert!
