Aranciata and Cedrata
Among the typical pastries, Caffè dell’Arte proposes also aranciata and cedrata, artisan delicacies loved by the local demanding customers.
Aranciata is made of sliced orange peels, while cedrata is made of grated lemon peels. Both pastries are decanted in water for many days, and then they are wringed out and cooked with honey and little sugar. Aranciata is served in the shape of swift nest, while cedrata is log-shaped.
These pastries, in the past, were served during Christmas festivities as dessert and as digestive thanks to the properties contained in peel oil.
White or crispy nougat
We prepare white nougat with Sicilian almonds combined with (uncooked) honey, whipped to have a soft consistency; instead, we use to cook almonds with honey to make crispy nougat, in order to be crisper and stronger than the previous one.
Our nougats are homemade prepared with high-quality ingredients, without preparations or chemical thickenings.
Lovers of almond biscuits can taste several delicious biscuits belonged to Sicilian tradition. At Caffé dell’Arte you can find the exclusive and tasty “Cardinali” or “Quaresimali”, homemade prepared in order to preserve ancient tastes.
