MERENDA REALE ® a dip in old - fashioned settings
Merenda Reale ® is a not -to -be-missed ritual following the "peculiar customs" of the18th century Courts. In this version the hot chocolate
, whose cocoa beans were brought from America to Piemonte by the Savoy family, plays a leading role. Moreover, it celebrates the noble art of pastry making
in Torino with its "bagnati"(biscuits for dunking) and some chocolate specialties.
The "reverence" for chocolate continues also in the 19th century, a period in which cafés flourished in Torino as a place for meeting, for culture and for politics. There you can drink a Bicerin
, the traditional morning beverage together with sweet delights of the noble art of patisserie.Garibaldi and parisien, chifel and democratic, biciolan and pan gindru
are just some of the names of the new sweet specialities created in the 1800s for best accompanying the new drink.
