Marzipan in Italy

henrikbe | Jul 26, 201612:26 PM    

Whenever I'm in Germany, one of the highlights for me is eating loads of Niederegger marzipan, and buying a few packs to enjoy the weeks after coming home. Unfortunately, I somehow forgot to stock up on my last trip, so it seems I'm in for a sad autumn wrt marzipan...

However. I'm off to Northern Italy in a couple of weeks. The Germans learned marzipan making from the Italians, didn't they? So I suppose someone in Italy also know how to make decent marzipan. What brands of Italian marzipan should I look for? I'm basically looking for marzipan with high almond content like the Luebecker variety, but I'm open for any suggestions.
