The Creation of Florentine: The Art of Confectionery Craftsmanship

How did Florentine come to life at Quaranta Confectionery Industry? As specialists in nougat, we applied our experience and knowledge in crafting high-quality sweets to create an entirely new product – a thin brittle layer, also made using artisanal methods. Quality and the selection of raw materials play a fundamental role in the success of this process.

Precise Selection of Raw Materials: The creation of Florentine begins with the careful selection of raw materials. We seek high-quality ingredients such as hazelnuts, pistachios, raspberries, and caramel to ensure an exceptional flavor. These ingredients are chosen for their freshness and authenticity.

Handcrafted Yet Innovative Production: The heart of Florentine is the artisanal approach to production, supported by process innovation. We work with care and precision, following traditions that date back generations. Handcrafted production means that every step of the process ensures total quality control. The brittle layers are rolled out thin and crisp, chocolate is melted with care, and hazelnuts, pistachios, raspberries, and caramel are evenly distributed by hand. High-quality chocolate, whether dark or white depending on the recipe, ensures a rich and enveloping taste.

An Explosion of Flavors and Textures: The combination of high-quality ingredients and artisanal skill results in a true explosion of flavors and textures, particularly pronounced in Florentine. Hazelnuts, pistachios, raspberries, and caramel add unique flavor notes, while the contrast between the crunchiness of the layers and the creaminess of the chocolate creates an extraordinary taste experience.

In summary, the creation of Florentine by Quaranta, known as a nougat specialist, is the result of a long tradition of craftsmanship and attention to the quality of raw materials. These sweet delicacies are an example of how experience and dedication can transform simple ingredients into previously non-existent products that delight palates worldwide. These little masterpieces are crafted with care and a careful selection of the finest ingredients. Every bite is an explosion of flavor and a symphony of textures, from the initial crunchiness to the sweet and creamy notes of chocolate.
