Panforte Margherita

dedicated to the Queen

Panforte bases its roots in the most ancient Tuscan tradition, its name is in fact born from the “Panmelato“, a cake that was prepared until the 10th century. The original recipe was embellished when the “Speziali”, ancient pharmacists, added precious spices from the East. Whole sweet almonds, orange peel, melon and candied citron blend to give life to a unique dough that still today is made by hand to guarantee its authentic taste.

How was Panforte Margherita born?

In 1879, the Sienese pharmacist, Galgano Parenti, owner of one of the city's leading bakeries, who later joined the Sapori family to develop together the Sienese sweets in the world, created a new version of panforte. The novelty consisted of a layer of powdered sugar that made it more delicate than previously. He dedicated the new recipe to Queen Margherita di Savoia, who was visiting Siena for the August Palio, and from that day the panforte took its name. She liked the kind gift so much that her knight of honor sent a heartfelt thank-you letter to Galgano, still jealously guarded by us today.
