Description

Sfogliatelle.

A sfogliatella is a classic, Neapolitan, shell-shaped Italian filo pastry.

We fill it with semolina, ricotta cheese, mixed peel and add a multitude of flavours.

We bake it and then dust with icing sugar.

Our recipe consists of only the best ingredients.

Who invented Sfogliatelle?

The sfogliatella was invented in Campania in Italy in the seventeenth century. According to legend, a nun created it in a convent by accident.

She was attempting to make another pastry but made a mistake when mixing the ingredients.

It was popularised in the nineteenth century by Pasquale Pintauro, a pastry chef in Naples.

Pintauro began selling sfogliatelle in his cake shop and they soon became a beloved pastry all over Italy.

What does Sfogliatella mean?

Sfogliatella translated into English means ‘small, thin leaf/layer’. This is in reference to the texture of the pastry, which is comparable to stacked leaves.
