How would you to take home the perfect gift, a souvenir of Milanese food excellence?
Three Italian ambassadors of taste, along with the most awarded wine label designer in the world, have risen nobly to the challenge of financing the restoration of the Duomo.
The chefs Carlo Cracco, Cesare Battisti and Gianluca Fusto have each created a confectionery product, while Mario di Paolo, recently awarded Designer of the Year, has created the ‘Milano wine’ label.
Battisti, chef at the innovative restaurant Ratanà, has created a soft nougat enhanced by some iconic ingredients such as puffed rice and saffron pistils.
Carlo Cracco presents his already famous ‘Baci di Cracco’, which are inspired by Baci di Dama (Ladies Kisses sandwich cookies) but are flatter and more colourful, somewhat similar to macarons.
Gianluca Fusto, a contemporary and innovative pastry chef, has created his ‘Biscotti di Milano’, biscuits made with a very crumbly base of gluten and lactose-free rice flour and saffron, therefore, also suitable for those with food intolerances.
The wine label designer Mario di Paolo has created the ‘Vino del Duomo’, a red Igt Verona, in collaboration with the Collina dei Ciliegi winery.
The confectionary and wine will be on sale in the Duomo Shop and online at:
