From 1885 Giuseppe Sebaste began to create excellent sweets inspired by one of the most precious goods of his territory: the Piedmont Hazelnut PGI. His family, now in its fifth generation, still carries on Giuseppe's dream: the passion for an ancient craft, the love for its origins and places, the enhancement of the fruits of the territory. In this company, respect for tradition and the search for innovation coexist every day. In Antica Torroneria Piemontese all the artisans are in continuous evolution. Many of the workers in the production boast over twenty years of experience and it is from them that the new generations inherit the experience and pride of their work. The expert eye of laboratory technicians can never be replaced by a machine, so much so that the machinery used in production is designed, engineered, patented and built specifically to conceive the work as in a large pastry laboratory. Antica Torroneria Piemontese is by no means in search of speed and savings during the production processes, rather it continuously pursues the best final result, applying the right times and the right temperatures in the processing, in order to obtain the excellent quality of the products and the maintenance of the natural aromas and perfumes.
In Antica Torroneria Piemontese it is men, machinery and rhythms that adapt to the various products, never the opposite. This has always been the case: slow times for a workmanship to perfection. The nougat preparation times change according to the seasons and the characteristics of the raw materials. Everything still happens as it once did, with manual bain-marie processing, slow cooking and patient waiting under the watchful eye of master pastry chefs. Also, for the Sweet Truffles the preparation of the amalgam is fundamental. The dough is left to rest overnight before continuing the process. Sweet Truffles are formed and cut one by one. All products are the result of the combination of ancient recipes and creative inspiration. Every year new products are added to the assortment, when intuition makes special flavors become a reality.
Thanks to the experience handed down from the four previous generations, raw materials are still selected with uncompromising care today. These are quality ingredients, aimed at the use of natural products, without artifice. No preservatives are added to nougat and sweet truffles. Scented honey, refined sugar, pure chocolate with at least 50% cocoa, enhance the unique taste of the Piedmontese PGI Hazelnuts. Those used here are the result of a 0 km chain. They are purchased with the shell in the countryside from farmers with whom the company deals directly; they are shelled, selected and finally roasted in small batches with the traditional hot air system, only at the time of use in the dough. The genuineness of the raw materials and a skilful workmanship are translated into these excellent products with an unmistakable taste.
