Gluten free chocolat and torrone from Italy!
Here it comes a brand new product from Italy that we are going to find soon in stores, in France, thanks to Ciao Gusto: Autore.
Autore is a range of gluten free chocolate and torrone that are made in Italy following the best artisanal tradition of chocolate production.
I met Antonio Autore, the founder, in Paris during the Italian food fair Cultural. What struck me at the very beginning was the packaging, those pastel colours are just so beautiful! Furthermore the chocolate and the torrone come inside the cutest boxes that I have ever seen and I can say that I do have a passion for boxes. I love them so much that a couple of years ago, I created a project in Italy called “Pacco d’artista” (Artists Box) especially conceived for the Italian mail. When I came back to Paris, I managed to present it to the French mail as well, who knows that maybe one that it will happen here too…
Going back to chocolate, I loved talking to Antonio. He told me that some years ago he gave up his job in a big, international company and decided to concentrate on his passions: food and chocolate. Antonio travelled a lot to select the best possible fava beans and bring them back to San Marco dei Cavoti, a lovely town close to Benevento, in the beautiful Campania region, where he was born and wanted to come back to.
