As well as those hero products that are a must-have at Christmas, Carluccio’s brings you new finds such as Pitta ‘Mpigliata, a Calabrian cake stuffed with fruits, nuts and honey; figs soaked in rum, filled with candied cherries and double-coated in dark chocolate; and an assortment of soft almond and hazelnut torrone from Sicily.
Beautifully decorated boxes of panettone, from the most traditional to prosecco-cream filled and gluten-free varieties, sit alongside luxury advent calendars featuring products from Carluccio’s core collection behind every ‘door’; and Italian hampers bursting with genuine, artisanal ingredients.
