VICENZOVO LADY FINGERS 200g
4 in stock
Together with Amaretti d’Italia, Vicenzovo Ladyfingers represent the story of Matilde Vicenzi: as is often the case with traditional pastry specialties, the origin of “savoiardi” biscuits is disputed… What seems certain is that they were first made for a visit by the French royals to the Dukes of Savoy, hence the biscuits’ Italian name.
On 1 August 2005, the “Regulations for the production and sale of certain baked confectionery products” were published in the Official Gazette of the Italian Republic, including our Ladyfingers (article 4).
By law, the name “Savoiardo” is reserved for the egg pastry biscuit with a characteristic elongated shape and a structure characterized by small, regular air bubbles, with sugar covering the upper surface and a typical vanilla and lemon flavour. The product must have 4% and 12% humidity.
*They are also called Ladyfingers because of their shape as they resemble the thin delicate fingers of a woman.
