The Filippi Pastry Shop offers a pleasant reinterpretation of a great classic among desserts, but replacing butter and milk derivatives with the noble fats of extra virgin olive oil.
The high percentage of unsaturated fats make olive oil a panacea for the heart and blood vessels, phenols are powerful antioxidants and anti free radicals. Many health properties of olive oil were already known from ancient times. For the ancient Romans, oil was, not coincidentally, a symbol of longevity and beauty, so much so that Cleopatra used to take long baths immersed in olive oil. Strucà is a dessert completely free of butter and milk derivatives, mixed exclusively with extra virgin olive oil. We are not sure if our Strucà can make you as beautiful as Cleopatra, but, what can I say, you have a whole year to experience it! Text taken from pasticceriafilippi.it
