Long ago my favorite uncle came from Italy’s Piedmont high region. His passion for good food became his life. He passed a tradition of rich culinary delights to his wife, the aunt who helped raise me. Properly served meals–often simple, not elaborate– with fresh quality ingredients were his passion. Desserts were often simple but always toothsome.
My favorite memory is ice cream accompanied by fruit, toppings, and real whipped cream. As I read Rigoni di Asiago Nocciolata’s label, I immediately thought of him, my Angel. I wonder if the hazelnuts in Nocciolata came from his mountain village.
Nocciolata smells like its top ingredients chocolate and hazelnut. Its taste is nuttier than competitors’ mostly bread spreads. However, its texture is creamier and saucier making it an ideal ice cream topping. What’s more it is organic, kosher, corn free and gluten free.
Rigoni di Asiago USA Nocciolata is sold in a 9.52 ounce jar for about $5.99 to $6.99. Ingredients include cocoa powder, hazelnuts, skim milk, natural vanilla aroma, sunflower oil, cocoa butter, vanilla, sunflower lecithin.
