tartufo di pizzo

The tartufo di Pizzo was born in the spring of 1943, when Prince Umberto of Savoia (now part of Italy’s Piedmont region) came to Pizzo to conduct a military inspection. The Pizzitanihonored him with a feast showcasing the foods of Calabria – artichokes, sun-ripened tomatoes, eggplant, fresh tuna, olives. The Prince was suitably impressed with the bounty of this region on the shoelaces of the Italian boot.
The tartufo is a lumpy ball of chocolate and hazelnut gelatos hand-formed around a liquid chocolate center and rolled in cocoa powder. Not pretty, but delicious.
