Il Panforte – originally invented by nuns from Siena, traditional spiced dried fruit and nut cake, perhaps one of the oldest sweetmeats in Italy, often eaten at the end of a meal accompanied by strong coffee and liqueur. Equally good on the cheeseboard, paired with a strong hard cheese or a soft cheese such as brie.
