A LITTLE HISTORY...
In the easternmost corner of Sicily, in the beautiful baroque Modica, the ritual of preparing chocolate worked at low temperature with the "bitter pasta", is handed down from generation to generation.
It was the Spaniards who brought to Modica the "xocolàtl", a product that the inhabitants of Mexico obtained from cocoa seeds shredded on a stone called "metate", so as to release the cocoa butter and obtain a grainy paste.
The Modicans learned this from the Spaniards, never moving over time to the industrial phase.
