Colomba

0 Products

To celebrate Easter, an unmissable dessert is the Colomba (similar to the Christmas Panettone). It was created in the 1930s by Dino Villani, head of advertising at Motta - a confectionery company in Milan. However, there are legends that trace this Easter cake back to the Longobard era when the Longobard king Alboin was offered a dove-shaped cake as a sign of peace and salvation during the siege of Pavia (mid-6th century). The original dough, made with flour, butter, eggs, sugar and candied orange peel, with a rich almond glaze, has since taken on various shapes and variations.
