Strega Baba Strega Liqueur

Strega Babas with Strega Liqueur are made with the finest fresh baked Babas and timeless Strega Liqueur. Babas are mushroom shaped yeast cakes soaked in hard liqueur and sugar. Made with a similar dough to Brioche, these cakes are left to leaven three times before baking thus ensuring a light, fluffy, cloud-like constancy. The cakes are dried out for a day before being soaked. This extensive process means that Babas are rarely made at home but purchased from specialty stores. The importance of using quality pastry is its ability to soak up your favorite liqueur. Babas are commonly soaked in Rum. Limoncello and other regional liqueurs are used as a special treat.
These Babas are soaked in Strega Liqueur made from over 70 herbs and spices. They are best served with lashings of cream or vanilla bean gelato. It is recommended that you turn the jar upside down before opening to ensure all cakes are fully covered in the liqueur.
Strega Alberti's roots stretch back to 1860 in Benevento. The founder Giuseppe Alberti, together with his apothecarist father, created a recipe for a herb based liqueur. The name is drawn from the myth of the Witches of Benevento and the love potion legends: Strega Liqueur. In addition to the liqueur which made it famous, Strega Alberti today produces a wide range of specialty products, from liqueurs to confections, with the same care, quality and attention to detail for which they have always been known.

Fossier Pink Biscuits in Assorted Flavors
K20330065Regular price $12.95 Sale price $7.99 Save $4.96
We offer four different flavors of the unique and delicious Fossier Pink Biscuits.
Fossier Mini Pink Biscuits dates back to the 1690s. At this time, bakers of the Champagne region, anxious to use the heat of their oven after cooking bread, had the idea of creating a special dough which, after having been cooked once, was left in the bread oven where it finished drying.
Hence the origin of the word BIS-CUIT: cooked twice. Originally, the biscuit was white. The decision was taken to flavor the dough with vanilla. In order to do this, the pod had to be crushed with sugar in a mortar to extract the aromatic substance in the form of small, almost black particles.
Mixed with a bright white dough, these vanilla particles discolored the finished biscuit. Someone then had the idea of masking this pigmentation with some red coloring. The delightful Biscuit Rose de Reims was born! Its recipe has remained unchanged since, as well as its method of manufacture, which conserves the double-cooking originality.
