A selection of the best pastries from the Gavi hills.
This space is dedicated to greedy: we have travelled to find the best local pastry chefs, selecting for you real small pastry gems that you can enjoy here, comfortably seated in front of a nice cup of steaming hot chocolate. Let's start with a local institution, the Amaretti di Traverso di Gavi: they were born in 1780 and have kept their (secret) recipe unaltered, handed down from father to son for generations. Unique. Let's move on to Franco Carrea, pastry chef linked to the history of Serravalle and its territory: he shows it every day in his incredible creations, strudel, artisan panettone with unusual combinations (chocolate & Taggiasca olives), but above all the "Baci di Libarna", a delicacy with Piedmontese hazelnuts that comes from the study of the archeology of food linked to the archaeological area of Roman Libarna. If we talk about the territory, we cannot miss Pasticceria Lasagna and the "Amaretto di Novi with pistachio", one of the most popular specialties of our store: selected almonds, egg whites and Sicilian pistachios from Bronte. Definitely enjoyable. And again the amaretti by Giovanni Il Fornaio di Gavi, the "bacetti" by Ilio di Ovada, the "bacioni" with chopped hazelnuts and the pastries by Giusy di Predosa ... we could go on forever, but let's do it first if come and visit "ledolciterre", seeing is believing! 😉
