Maize biscuits are the traditional biscuits of the province of Cuneo: delicious rings made with wheat flour and “Meliga” maize flour, from an ancient type of Piedmontese maize, with grated lemon zest.
Every biscuit is hand-made, creating the characteristic round shape.
Curious facts: Camillo Benso di Cavour’s favourite sweet treat
It is said that Mr Cavour used to finish his meals with two maize biscuits and a glass of Barolo Chinato. Maize biscuits pair beautifully with a sweet wine like Moscato or sweet liqueur wines, such as Barolo Chinato and Moscato Passito.
