torta degli addobbi

rice and almond tart

A traditional Bolognese sweet, made with rice cooked in milk, almonds, bitter almond liqueur, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, candied citrus, and lemon peel.

Beginning in the 17th century it would be prepared for the Festa degli addobbi, which each parish would celebrate every ten years, offering slices of tart cut into rhomboids.

Designated PAT.
