: Recommended for those who love to taste typical and delicious products from le Marche. : The Cicerchia can be used in a variety of soups, either alone, or together with other legumes, or combined with other cereals. Mielavanda is perfect to sweet hot beverages and delicious as garnish on yogurt, biscuits, but also on savoury products such as aged cheeses. Lonzino di Fico, cutted in slices, is delicious tasted au natural, anyway, for lovers of sweet and sour, with a slice of medium aged cheese. Pacasassi can be served directly with fishes, meats and cheeses. You can use them also to stuff pizza, sandwiches and savoury pies. The mix between dark chocolate and liqueur has always been successful, so the Pralines filled with cherry wine are delicious savoured alone at the end of the meal, to enhance its taste.
