Creating A Gift Basket
“One of my best friends just got engaged and I wanted to send the couple a token of my best wishes for a happy life together. According to an old Italian legend, Panforte has the power to maintain love and harmony in marriages. So, I made them this little gift basket full of the Italian delicacy and some other goodies that pair perfectly with these luscious fig cakes.”

Takes Us Back to Tuscany!
Honey Almond panforte with a cup of coffee is a special combination. It takes us to a small Tuscan café while we are still at home in our kitchen.
Favorite On My Charcuterie Board!
The Cranberry Almond Panforte is one of my favorite additions when I am making a charcuterie board! There is a great balance of sweetness, spicy and nut texture. I recommend this panforte
for all of your upcoming events.
The ancient home of panforte or “strong bread” is Siena, a city in the famous Tuscany region of Italy. Thought to have been created around the year 1200 by nuns in an abbey near Siena, panforte was a cake prepared from dried fruits, nuts, honey and the once exotic spices brought back to Italy by the Crusaders. Because these spices were considered to have healing properties, panforte was first sold as a medicine by medieval pharmacists that jealously guarded their secret recipes.
As the popularity of this delicious cake increased, a legend emerged that panforte, when shared by couples, had amazing power to unite families and to maintain love and harmony in marriages.
A gift of Nutra Fig Panforte is a symbol of the giver’s best wishes that the receiving couple be blessed with continuing love and harmony in their marriage.
The gift of Nutra Fig Panforte symbolizes the giver's best wishes of unending love and countless blessings for the receiver.
