ALDA keeps this millennial but familiar tradition, by selecting figs and putting them together with Apulian almonds, lemon and cinnamon. Last step: a covering of dark chocolate, cocoa 60% min. In this way figs become, in our interpretation, a casket that keeps scents and tastes and it is a sign of ancient knowledge and of a generous land.
“Giara”, “ocio”, “anfora”, many names to state a container, always made of earthenware, used in the past to keep the dried figs, placed together with bay leafs in the pantry. Each family put with them different spices or flavours according to their personal story, sign of a widespread and different use. They were part of the cold winter days, reminding the hot summer days. ALDA brings back to life the traditional “CAPASA TE LE FICHE”: a classic of the local pastry, figs individually wrapped and offered in elegant earthenware pots modernly coloured.
