Cassata Fiorenza is our favorite local delicacy. It's difficult to find now, it used to be the florentine's christmas cake. It it called "cassata" because seclusion nuns used to make the wafer, the main component of the cake. The layers are separated by a hazelnut cream, and the whole thing is covered by a thick layer of dark chocolate. Make sure to include it in your Tuscany culinary adventure!
