  • About

I first saw these wonderful biscotti at Giulio and Nina Nostro’s Pasticceria Margherita, in Reggio Calabria. They make two different versions’—these and a kind in which a freshly made almond paste containing eggs replaces the dough, and homemade citron preserves are the filling. The Nostros are from Messina, in Sicily, where these biscotti are traditional.
