Meet the Makers

The Desideri family has been producing confectionery since the early 1900s, when Stefano Desideri - great grandfather to Giacomo and Luca - travelled around the villages in the Tuscan countryside selling delicacies in local fairs and markets, an activity that was eventually replaced by his own production of Cialde di Montecatini wafers. Since that time, the traditional Tuscan recipes have been handed down (unchanged) from generation to generation. A century later, Giacomo and Luca, who share their grandfather's love of confectionery and their Tuscan heritage, are pursuing the tradition with the artisanal production of exceptionally wholesome Wafers, Brigidini, and Cantucci biscuits, made without any form of added colourings or preservatives - one of the family's core values.
