The art of pastry-making has its roots in the Medieval period and still maintains its high level of excellence. The amaretti of Fochi have been proof of this since 1897.
The recipe for these unique cookies goes back to the eighteen hundreds. They were invented by Giovanni Bellini of Carmignano (who was nicknamed I Fochi for his impetuous personality). His unique talent gave an original taste to the amaretti from Carmignano and continue to distinguish this cookie from amaretti produced elsewhere. A cookie that is the size of a walnut, with an amber color and round form. It is a little softer than other amaretti with an unforgettable flavour of almonds. This small shop has been located on the site where a hundred years ago fresh pasta was made and conserves the original pasta maker which was run with the help of a mule. The Bellini Cookie Factory quickly became the location for these wonderful sweets, the recipe for which has been handed down from generation of this family to the next.
