ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The nougat story of the Quaranta family begins in Caravaggio in 1924, birthplace of the famous painter Michalangelo Merisi, called 'il Caravaggio'. It is almost a century of tradition and dedication. The founder Antonio Quaranta, together with his wife Alzira, was a passionate artisanal producer of nougat and other typical, traditional sweets from Cremona and Bergamo, among which are candy floss, brittle and the special carob honey nougat. A small laboratory in the heart of Caravaggio was the place that gave birth to the recipe book bearing precise details on amounts and ingredients, some of which are still used in production nowadays: after almost 100 years, the original "recipe 101" of the almond soft nougat has never changed! Using only whole nuts, without preservatives, and carefully roasting them to get the unique crunchy sensation that makes the nougat so special. Quaranta only use pure chocolate for preparations and creams created by their pastry chefs. Nowadays the company is still firmly in the hands of the Quaranta family, the founder's grandchildren, Fabio and Massimo Quaranta.
