Star-shaped nougat tart with almonds and honey in lithographed tin.
Mandorlato Scaldaferro is a confectionery product composed of toasted almonds mixed with honey, sugar and egg white whipped until the mixture becomes white, creamy and soft: everything is cooked very slowly.
The dough is then worked by hand, cut into sticks and immediately wrapped in heat to preserve its aroma and fragrance.
The ingredients, all of first quality, are one of the secrets of the product, such as the special blend of honeys combined to give the Almond tree an unmistakable bouquet, and theItalian almonds carefully selected and roasted directly by the Scaldaferro family.
The manufacturing process, which involvescooking for many hours in a bain-marie not found in industrial nougat, makes the Mandorlato Scaldaferro Scaldaferro crumbly and immediately recognizable, characterized by a “frothy” frame and a slightly amber colouring.
Another inimitable feature of the Scaldaferro mandolate is the hand laying. In fact, each slat of almond is placed bow by bow on a bed of wafer, instead of being rolled, pressed and ironed by machine, thus maintaining greater friability and volume.
