Dutch of Savoy
Ladyfingers originated in the late 15th century at the court of the Duchy of Savoy and were created to mark the occasion of a visit by the King of France. Later they were given the name Savoiardi and recognized as an “official” court biscuit. They were particularly appreciated by the young members of the court and offered to visitors as a symbol of the local cuisine.
Keep in a dry place. Any amount of moisture that can form inside the packs can destroy these lady fingers. Once opened, consume within a week as savoiardi is not meant for long time storage. It is recommended you use them for your intended recipes such as tiramisu, a few days after arrival.
