It is not possible to come to Varese or to its province and not get in, at least once, in a pastry shop.
They are everywhere, one more beautiful than the other and they are welcoming, elegant and fragrant.
The sweet of Varese is the quintessential ‘AmorPolenta, or Dolce Varese, a simple dessert made with corn flour and ground almonds: light, fragrant and seemingly poor it will not fail to amaze you for his goodness.
Another typical sweet in the province is the “Amaretti”, the macaroons, small cakes made ??with almonds or hazelnuts, soft and very tasty, customized by bakeries of different cities to surprise you every time.
You can try those of Gallarate, Saronno, Varese … all similar but unique in shape, taste and texture.
You should finally remember a particular sweet, the “Belli e Buoni”, Ugly and Good, made with only egg white and nuts: nothing more, but try it, you will find it hard to stop eating them.
