Italy’s Piedmont region sits at the foot of the Alps, with rolling hills and rich soil that make it the perfect place for acres upon acres of hazelnut trees to sprout. Only here, a special and prized varietal of IGP hazelnuts grows with a rich, creamy, and full-bodied flavor that is second to none. And in a region renowned for its hazelnuts, it’s no surprise that many sweet inventions originate here.
At Galup, flavor comes first. Even the business’ name is a tribute to tastiness and indulgence with Galup meaning “delicious” and “greedy” in the local dialect of founder Pietro Ferrua’s home in Piedmont.
Over the last century, each generation of the family has continued to keep creativity in the form of pastry alive at Galup. Today, Galup’s vast collection of Panettone continues to reimagine the standard Italian cake with the soft, fluffy dough blended with unique flavors of white chocolate, wild berries, peaches, cherries, caramel, custard and more – all made with excellent Italian ingredients.
And their Traditional Pandoro cake is no less special, featuring a soft vanilla flavor and a golden hue from the fresh egg yolks blended into the batter with creamy butter and other genuine ingredients. Both cakes are a staple Italian holiday dessert and give unmatched joy in each slice.
