Italian bakery Olivieri 1882 is offering up a limited-edition product in celebration of Easter, its signature Colomba di Pasqua.
The Colomba is a traditional, yeasted dove-shaped cake known for its feather-light texture, and heady floral, orange aroma. It’s an edible symbol of the Easter holiday.
Crafted for over 140 years, Olivieri 1882’s Colomba Classica is 100 percent handmade, and features exclusively high-quality ingredients including Tahitian Bourbon vanilla bean, raw cane sugar, centrifuged Belgian butter and Italian acacia honey. Sticky morsels of candied orange stud the cloud-like sweet bread which is then crowned with an almond, hazelnut, pine nut and pearl sugar glaze. A four-day production process, painstakingly long fermentation and zero preservatives leads to a fluffy, rich yet refined, and extremely digestible final product that has won a slew of awards in its native Italy.
Olivieri 1882 Colomba also comes in a variety of flavors including Triple Chocolate, Apricot Salted Caramel, Tangerine and Cardamom, and more. They are available for $75 dollars, not including shipping costs, through the bakery’s website and Goldbelly.
