In every town there is a caffè which has become an institution over the years – “the caffè”. This is the case of Peratoner, in Pordenone, North East of Italy. A small and elegant Italian caffè where you can still smell – a part from the delicious smell of chocolate and pastries – the scent of the past years when bistros were fournished in a vintage style with leather seats and small round marble tables and, for the most elegant ones like Peratoner, with an internal chocolate fountain. Every time I pass by this little shop I can’t resist and if I’m not having one of their lovely high-calories cakes at least I need to stop and have a look at their windows…a sort of work of art where they display every sort of chocolate creation.
I thought these elegant bordeaux colour boxes could be perfect as favours at a wedding. You can fill them with the pieces of chocolate you wish! I chose for you the following assortment:
> Nut or Almond chocolate: a wonderful mix of smooth caramel and nut or almond
> Lemon-Orange flavored chocolate: an interesting juicy white chocolate taste at first impression, followed by a light touch of coconut flavor. The right touch colour!
> Pistachios chocolate: a double layer of creamy and green pistachio flavoured chocolate laying on a thin foil of back chocolate underneath
