Lazzaroni is among the oldest and most renowned Italian bakery and confectionery companies, renowned in particular for their amaretti di Saronno – a secret recipe which they have preserved since 1718.
The story goes that three hundred years ago, the Cardinal of Milan paid an unexpected visit to the town of Saronno. To welcome and honour him, two young lovers quickly devised their own cookie recipe of sugar, crushed apricot kernels and egg white, wrapped in pairs to symbolize their love.
Today, Lazzaroni amaretti are still made according to the original recipe, using quality local ingredients. In 2010 Lazzaroni were awarded the Good Egg Award, recognising their exclusive use of free range eggs.
