DESEO orange peel and dark chocolate Cantuccini are handmade, baked on a daily basis, respecting standards of quality and authenticity that do not permit the use of any type of preservative nor palm oil for its negative effects on health and environment.

Cantucci (or Cantuccini) are one of the greatest confectionery prides of Tuscan cuisine and represent the good Tuscan living in the world.

In Tuscany they are normally tasted at the end of a meal by soaking them in a local fortified wine, called Vin Santo, but they are also perfect with coffee or tea during any other moment of the day. 

The name seems to derive from "canto" or "cantellus", that is a slice of bread in Latin. 

Their traditional elongated shape is obtained by cutting diagonally the hot loaf of dough into slices. 

The original recipe dates back to the 19th century, when Antonio Mattei, a pastry chef from Prato (Tuscany), developed this delicious and unique biscuit that received numerous awards at trade fairs in Italy and abroad.


About the producer:

Following his desire of having his own artisan’s workshop, Francesco Pandolfini, keen on food and driven by the spirit of continuous research, founded in 2001 DESEO. 

Deseo’s main goal is creating well-balanced and tasty biscuits containing only excellent ingredients and natural flavours, following handmade working methods and traditional cooking systems.


Our recommendation:

As these biscuits are very rich, they make a wonderful treat alone. Our pairing suggestion is a good cognac.
