A BIT OF HISTORY...
In the easternmost corner of Sicily, in the splendid and baroque Modica, the ritual of preparing chocolate worked at low temperature with "bitter paste", has been handed down from generation to generation.
It was the Spaniards who brought the "xocolàtl" to Modica, a product that the inhabitants of Mexico obtained from crushed cocoa beans on a stone called "metate", in order to release cocoa butter and obtain a grainy paste.
The Modicans learned this process from the Spaniards, without ever passing over time to the industrial phase.
