The Bindi Semifreddo Al Torroncino is a delicious nougat ice cream topped with crunchy praline hazelnuts, and shaped into an octagonal cylinder. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, creamy, and nutty.
This is perfect as a dessert, or as a refreshing snack between meals. You can serve it with fruits like strawberries or raspberries, or with a drizzle of either hot fudge, or caramel sauce. You can even have it as affogato al caffe! Combining it with gourmet coffee will make for an interesting coffee treat.
Attilio Bindi, a Tuscan restaurateur, moved to Milan with his family in 1946. He opened a small pastry shop on one of Milan’s historic streets, Via Larga. This would be the birth of Bindi. His desserts were delicious and used quality ingredients, so it was no surprise that they grew in popularity quickly. Attilio Bindi eventually became the exclusive supplier of dessert to some of Milan’s finest restaurants, and he delivered them personally on a humble bicycle. Today, Bindi desserts can be found all over the world, and their deliciousness and their quality has never wavered.
