arca del gusto, slow food, frascatiThe Pupazza Frascatana enters into Slow Food Arc of Taste (brand of excellence )

After the well-known Frascati DOCG, another famous product of Frascati finally receives the certificate of excellence that recognizes its historical and cultural importance for the territory of the Castelli Romani: the Pupazza Frascatana. This famous honey biscuit, with the features of a woman with 3 breasts (tells the oral tradition that the puppet represents a peasant woman or a nurse who sweetens the soul of children with the wine that flows from the third of her breasts), enters the famous Arca del Gusto by Slow Food (Ark of Taste), thanks to the work of Condotta Slow Food Frascati e Terre Tuscolane (which made an excellent work of historical reconstruction of the roots of the Pupazza), with an official presentation made at the Salone del Gusto in Turin and the participation of local institutions. This attempt to push the Pupazza to the attention of the italian institutions, as a product of excellence, is a work begun by associations, and private citizens, since so many years, with initiatives such as the one we began years ago through our website and social networks. Moreover it was finally abolished terms like Bambola or Miss, and it was chosen the diction Pupazza Frascatana. The recipe for this biscuit, symbol of Frascati and its pride, is simple, how complex is the processing, where acacia or millefiori honey is the heart of the recipe. As for the appearance, it was formalized the 800 century peasant dress, the 3 breasts, while for the eyes, the mouth and the necklace, many realizations are accepted as valid (from the typical fissures, to the coffee beans, or the confectionery products, or the candied fruit) .
