Do you ever eat these small and delicious biscuits typical of Casale Monferrato?
The original recipe involved the use of simple ingredients such as flour, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a unique combination difficult to replicate.
The story tells that Domenico Rossi normally spent his evenings at the Caffè della Concordia drinking Krumiro, a liqueur of the time, with friends.
One night, after leaving the cafe, Rossi proposed to his friends to end the evening in his laboratory where he began to prepare sweets for everyone. It is said that the Krumiri were born in this way in 1970 and then took their final form in 1878, probably in memory of Vittorio Emanuele II and his mustache.
The Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies in the Decree of 7 June 2012 "Twelfth revision of the national list of traditional agri-food products - Annex, in the Official Gazette of the Italian Republic n.142, 20 June 2012, p. 53" recognized this delights among traditional Piedmontese agri-food products.
Personally I can't do without these cookies and over the years I have tasted many, with variations such as chocolate, dried and dehydrated fruit, but the original recipe is still the best.
In her gastronomy, La Ghiotta managed to recreate those unique flavors that remind me of childhood, when in the summers I spent in Pomaro Monferrato, my father brought Krumiri home on Fridays to be enjoyed during the weekend snacks.
Do not miss the chance to taste these Krumiri, together with all the other products carefully selected for you !!!
