The Wild Wheat Biscotti are bigger, thicker and much more substantial than your standard run-of-the-mill biscotti. They are substantial & delicious; each pack weighs 400g almost half a kilo. Ingredients include sliced almonds, prunes, hazelnuts, dried apricots, citrus zest and raisins, distributed generously through each biscotti; making them both wonderfully crunchy and pleasantly chewy due to the abundant rich moist fruit; making a nourishing and memorable combination.
Each biscotti is double baked and has a crisp crunch with each bite taken. Because they’re much more substantial than your average biscotti they cost a little more, but as we all know you get what you pay for, plus more. The large bag is easy to open and re-sealable to help maintain freshness.
Wild Wheat Biscotti make a generous gift to take for a dinner party or the perfect after dinner treat to serve with tea or coffee. Enjoy anytime with family & friends with morning or afternoon tea. In Italy they are traditionally served with a small glass of Vin Santo, a fine Italian dessert wine.
Stamped on the pack baker Andrew Fearnside writes ‘One must devour’ he’s correct, once opened it takes courage & discipline to not go back for more!
