The Pandolce is available for online sale with deliveries starting June 4. It is also available for sale in Rome’s Spazio Niko Romito Bar e Cucina, which has been open to takeaways during the past few weeks of quarantine within a four-kilometre radius. The celebrity chef Romito, “Pandolce is the new cake that I have created after years of study and research on the fermentation techniques of yeast in traditional Italian pastry. I have created it in two different versions, the classic one and one with chocolate. I imagine it as a daily hug that can be eaten at any time of day and which will be available throughout the year,” said. The Pandolce has the flavors and aromas that Romito uses to make the mixture like an emulsion of almonds and olive oil that makes the cake smooth and delicate, fluffy and sweet, Food and Wine Gazette reported. It can be eaten as is or combined with cream, jam, ice-cream or fresh fruit.
