History and Tradition

We have always given importance to traditions and local specialties. When researching on our land, “Il Biellese,” we found a manuscript which meticulously describes the appreciated pastry-making of our region, with specific reference to the quality of canestrelli, our strong point, which were appreciated and purchased all over the world.

The manuscript dates back to 1805, it’s written in French and can be found in the Royal Library in Turin. Here are a few extracts with reference to products and places in the province of Biella.
