Italian Torrone Cobaita

Italian Torrone Cobaita

This delicious Sicilian Torrone is a regional Christmas speciality which has been hand made in Donna Elvira's family run 'laboratorio' in Modica.

The Cobaita is a sweet and crunchy Torrone made with all local produce - sesame seeds (from nearby Ispica, almonds from Avola and honey from the Hyblean Mountains. The name Cobaita is said to come from the Arabic word 'qubbiat' which means with almondsThe honey used in this product is very special. Produced in only a very small area of Sicily (only in the provinces of Siracusa and Ragusa), it has been considered one of the great honeys since ancient times. What characterises this honey is the combination of sensory qualities related to the rich and varied local flora - it has a distincltive colour and flavour.

The secret for a perfect Cobaita is the time of cooking: all the ingredients are put in a pot over low heat and, stirring constantly, they are cooked until both the sesame seeds and the almonds are perfectly toasted.

In Modica, Christmas is not Christmas without this treat! The Cobaita is made from completely natural ingredients and contains no additives, preservatives or colourants of any type.

I contacted Vorrei because my recipient told me that the Porcini mushrooms were not included, Vorrei told me that the advert on your site was wrong, and that the mushrooms were in fact in the sauce not separate. But their own website states Porcini and spice mix 5g. I am rather confused as to what is right.
