Today we are taking you to the sweetest journey of all, a tour of the best Italian patisseries as recommended by the premier Italian guide Gambero Rosso (literally, Red Prawn). Careful selection of ingredients, utmost care for the technique, great passion and a deep respect of traditions are all traits these great establishments share. La Pasticceria, patisserie in Italian, is an institution in Italy, which thanks to the work of these great master pastry chefs is now being exported beyond its national borders, for the delight of many.
PASTICCERIA VENETO, LA CREME DE LA CREME
The Honorary International President of the jury for the Coupe Du Monde De La Patisserie, and part of the team that coached the Italian side to win the 2015 Coupe Du Monde De La Patisserie, Iginio Massari is a great example of Italian excellence. Inaugurated in 1971, Pasticceria Veneto is the first Italian patisserie to be included in the exclusive international network of Relais Desserts. In the same location since it first opened, the patisserie is Massari’s workshop, where the harmony of different flavours guides the creative process. You only realise how good the best can taste once you try one of Massari’s incredible creations.
