Two crunchy wafers with a dark chocolate filling and a long history: Canestrelli Bieleis (lit. “canestrelli from Biella) is a Traditional Piedmontese Agrofood product. Brusa’s Canestrelli Bieleis, made according to the traditional method, are composed of 70% extra-fine, extra-dark chocolate, sandwiched between two crispy wafers flavoured with cocoa and almond oil. Crispy, fragrant and with a well-balanced flavor, Canestrelli Bieleis are many centuries old!
The ancestor of Canestelli Bieleis is the “miasce”, rustic thin wafers baked at the time of the Ancient Romans. The traditional Canestrelli Bieleis were invented probably in the eighteenth century: white flour was blended with fioretto (a very finely-sifted corn flour), sugar, soft butter and the grated rind of a lemon, then milk was added to obtain a rather firm mixture, and it was baked between two slabs of red-hot stone. Later, steel plates were used, and the noble families would engrave them with their family coats of arms to personalise their canestrelli.
Canestrej Bieleis are mentioned in the manuscript “Notice sur l’arrondissement de Biella, departement de la Sesia” dated 1805, held at the royal library in Turin, in which they are described as a typical product of Biella.
