Strucà is a no-butter, dairy-free cake, made with extra-virgin olive oil and produced all year round. It is light and airy, with the delicate honey-vanilla flavor of panettone. It is topped with icing and Bari almonds.
The high percentage of unsaturated fats make olive oil a panacea for heart and blood vessels. Its phenols are powerful antioxidants, fighting against free radicals. A lot of healthy properties of olive oil were already known in the remote past. For ancient Romans oil was such a symbol of longevity and beauty that Cleopatra used to have long baths dipped in the olive oil.
Pasticceria Filippi has its beginnings in 1972 in Zané, in the province of Vicenza, when Maria and Giuliano began baking authentic cakes and pastries using only the best ingredients they could find. Today, together with their sons Andrea and Lorenzo, the family continues to operate with their philosophy that everything that is made well, with care and passion, requires time. Quality products need “slow” time and attention. You will taste the difference that time, loving attention and quality ingredients makes in all of Pasticceria Filippi products. This is panettone the way it is meant to taste.
