I’m Claudio Tallarico (Italian Chef). I live in Australia near Margaret River. I produce typical Italian Biscuits and more…
Italy is comprised of 20 regions, each producing its own culinary treasures. In this case, each biscuit has a story behind it and influences Italy`s culture, traditions and knowledge.For example, the Krumiri were first invented by King Vittorio Emanuele`s chef who in his honour shaped them as the king`s moustache. Now they are one of Torino`s most famous and wanted biscuits.
The Brutti ma Buoni (Ugly but nice) where first made in 1878 when by mistake, a baker dropped crushed hazelnuts in meringue. By this simple mistake he created his own fortune which influenced italy`s history and culinary knowledge.
The Ricciarelli from Siena are known as the king of the Italian biscuits. According to legend, Ricciardetto della Gherardesca of Siena in the XIV century was the person to introduce these sweets in his castle near Volterra after his return from the Crusades. The name “ricciarello” seems to derive from the original curled shape of the sultan`s slippers he had seen in the Holy Land.

· Chiacchere · Cannoli · Ciambelle Romane · Ossa da Mordere
These are just a few of the many biscuits that we produce. Our intention is to produce every biscuit Italy has to offer with the same care and love that our mothers and grandmothers used to make them. Our biscuits are made from the freshest ingredients and don`t contain any types of additives and artificial colourings as we want people to experience the real taste of Italy`s own biscuits.
