Pistocchi Cake with Peperoncino (spicy pepper) - 40gr
The Chili Cake was the first variant of the Classic one, obtained by mixing minced chili pepper with chocolate cream during the infusion, filtering it then after a few hours. Taste it with a butter or ginger biscuit, or with a red onion jam of Tropea.
It’s a handmade chocolate fudge cake that contains no eggs, no flour, no butter, no gluten with zero sugar added… only extra dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, without additives or preservatives, almost a ganache - They use a blend of 5 different dark chocolates - final percentage is around 72%.
Claudio Pistocchi, the chocolate master, created his first Dark Chocolate Cake in 1990 when he was working as a Chef in Florence.
After few years the Dark Chocolate Cake became “TORTAPISTOCCHI” with the aim of moving away from the first attempts of imitation.
Torta Pistocchi has gone from strength to strength up to become a famous brand in the Italian artisanal chocolate scene.
With our TortaPistocchi Classic cake we won the Italian Gold Medal at the International Chocolate Awards 2013. The same cake was awarded with 2 stars at the famous London competition Great Taste 2015 for both the cake’s cubes presented and for being a Gluten Free product.
Other great confirmation in 2016 winning one star at the Great Taste 2016.
