One of our happiest memories of childhood is often associated with our mother’s home-made biscuits. Maybe she had a special recipe, passed on to her by her own mother and (as we were told) only known by a very few. As children, we were always fascinated to watch the biscuits rising in the oven; it seemed almost like a magic spell. How could simple ingredients like eggs, sugar, milk and flour be transformed into something so delicious? While we were waiting to try them, we breathed in that lovely aroma and time seemed to pass so slowly… 

Those biscuits are still to be found here at the Girifalco. Every morning, just as in the old days, we bake them for your breakfast. The recipe remains unchanged, and so does the delicious aroma. With the same care and attention, we also bake wonderful cakes and make jams from the fruit in our garden. 

So every morning is a little like returning to childhood.
