Natural leaven is the most important ingredient, absolutely irreplaceable, the signature at the bottom of a work of art. Filippi's mother dough is the unique imprint that makes Filippi products authentic. Filippi's mother dough has been kept alive for more than forty years and preserved with care and attention, the way one would care for a living thing, as sourdough is.
Filippi only uses fresh eggs produced by free-range hens.
Extra virgin olive oil, liquid gold, a symbol of Mediterranean countries, right from to the heart of the Iblei Mountains, in South-Eastern Sicily, where the most ancient olive tree planted on the Earth, thrives in its natural habitat. Filippi has chosen a blend of different varieties (Moorish, Biancolilla, Nocellara, Cerasuola, and Tonda Iblea) cultivated near the Mediterranean Sea. Olives are picked by hand, brought to the producer’s crusher, and milled on the same day by cold centrifugation to grant this oil its high-quality features.
Filippi uses an optimal natural sweetener, honey, dosing it with a lower amount of sugar. Filippi's honey comes from bees that are treated ecologically and fly on the hillsides of the Po Valley, in the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills, Padova.
Since Filippi doesn’t use any artificial flavoring, vanilla is a particularly important ingredient for them: it is the fundamental natural flavor that rounds off and completes the taste of their products. The final touch that only a flower can give! Filippi's Planifolia Bourbon vanilla powder comes from organic and certified fair trade cultivations in Madagascar.
Cacao Fino de Aroma is a classification of the International Cocoa Organization (ICCO) that describes Casa Luker cocoa as unique in the world for its exquisite fruity and flowery aromas and flavor with nutty malt notes. Pasticceria Filippi has chosen Casa Luker, for the absolute attention to the quality of its chocolate and for the ethical spirit that guides its every strategic choice, factors that will soon lead it to become a B-Corp.
Only natural fruits. Lemon peel from Sicilian lemons, orange peel from Washington oranges from Calabria, peaches, sour Amarena cherries, round apricots... and, of course, Australian raisins with an amber color and made from grapes with a very thin peel, which their melting point and ability to stay intact in the dough.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
what is a Colomba?
Colomba is the traditional Easter cake in Italy. It is a rich and fluffy cake traditionally made with high-quality flour, farm-fresh eggs, sugar, butter, and natural yeast that takes at least 30 hours to rise. After rising, the dough is then baked into the iconic dove ("Colomba" in Italian) shape and finally topped with pearl sugar and almonds.
