The Veneziana is a symbol of the culinary tradition of Venice, aptly representing its heritage and the combination of the cultural influences of faraway lands mixed in with Italian creativity. Over the centuries, the simple softness of this sweet bread was flavored with the spices that came to Venice from the East. Dario Loison created his version of the Veneziana by bringing together the unique characteristics of the Venetian pastry tradition with his passion and experience gained over the years. The result is a skillfully leavened cake, enriched with fine crystalized sugar and Italian nuts.
It only takes a look at Sonia Design’s packaging to find ourselves in the enchanting city of Venice. The Grand Canal, the familiar statue of Moorish merchant Rioba, and the Palazzo Mastelli are reproduced with elegance on the packaging and combined with the traditional shape of the Venetian window, thus giving texture to the entire container. The final touch is added by the ribbon holder, a coin called Osella that the Doge gave as a gift to the members of the Great Council.
Veneziana al Pistacchio is a cake made by means of the natural fermentation of sourdough, with an irregular oval shape, reminiscent of a dove. The cake itself is especially soft owing to the use of fresh milk, butter, and cream. It is light in texture and enriched with natural Mananara vanilla from Madagascar, filled with cream of Pistacchio Verde di Bronte PDO. The surface is covered with pistachio icing, decorated with "Pistacchio Verde di Bronte PDO” and grains of sugar.
Pistacchio Verde di Bronte PDO. This pistachio variety grows only in the hilly land around Bronte, Catania, and only here does it acquire a bright emerald-green color and an intense, resinous fragrance. Pistachio nuts are harvested in September and are used in the making of many confections, such as brittles, nougats, cakes, and pastries.
Vanilla is one of the most prized spices. Loison sources theirs directly from growers in Madagascar, as they offer one of the best vanilla crops in the world. The fragrant black pods we are more familiar with are obtained after a lengthy production process.
