The Camaldoli’s schiacciata
We produce the real crush of Camaldoli in our ancient oven from 1930, on an ancient original recipe of the great-great-grandparents Tassini who already produced it for the pilgrims passing through Moggiona and the Canova dell’Eremo in 1890.
In our artisanal bakery we make an endless scale of delicious sweets made with fresh and natural ingredients carefully chosen.
We use every type of flour selected from our trusted miller: corn flour , chestnut, rice, emmer wheat, unrefined, wheat flour, stone-ground.
The history of the Tassini family
Who we are
With my husband Maurizio and our daughter Elisa, we are the third and fourth generation; everyday we try with our work and our effort to pay tribute to our ancestors; for the ones that are gone, whose memory is in our hearts, and for who is still present, for us inexhaustible source of stories and advices, like uncle Danilo.
My husband pays tribute to his father Silvano, historic memory of Camaldoli, enchanting the customers like a modern ministrel, telling them ancient stories and modern intuitions, giving a little peace of Camaldoli to all of them.
Elisa worthy successor of grandmother Rosanna, welcomes kindly our customers, entertaining them with detailed descriptions of our dishes; delighting them with hers Camaldoli’s schiacciata, she makes it and she also keeps jealously the recipe inherited by grand-mother Bruna, who had been making it for her beloved costumers since 1930.
My tribute to the past is in my dishes, in my kitchen, strictly territorial, every dish has is own history, his own ancient taste, perfectly integrated with modern ingredients.
I like particularly the poorest dishes and at the same time the most ancient, the ones that taste like a mother, like home, like family.
As i’m sure you’ve already guessed, stay at the Hotel Camaldoli or eat in our restaurant means become part of a family, my family. While i’m writing the bread is in the wood-burning oven, spreading in the air an intense perfume, and i already think at the friends that will taste it. If we already know, you know that my kitchen is always open for all of you. And if we don’t know each other, i think this is the right chance to do it.
I’m Maria Pia an with Maurizio and Elisa
I wait for you!
