Many delicious delicacies were created after the eighteenth century: ‘chifel’, a variation on the Viennese croissant; ‘foré’, a kind of bagel; ‘bicciolano di Vercelli’; a shortcrust ‘brioss’; ‘parisien’, the so-called ‘democratic’ bread… In the Risorgimento period, ‘garibaldin’ (a slice of simple buttered bread) and ‘garibaldi’ (a biscuit made of shortbread with raisins and apricot jam) became very fashionable. Finally, brand new hazelnut-based specialties were created in the second half of the century: Chivasso ‘noaset’ (‘nocciolini’), ‘cri-cri’, ‘givu’, and the hazelnut chocolate that would come to be known as Gianduiotto.
The menu includes 2 courses:
- ‘Bicerin’ with the three ‘stisse’ (three ingredients: chocolate, milk cream, and coffee) accompanied by a selection of ‘bagnati’ (biscuits to dip)
