Also Matilde Vicenzi will be present at SIAL in order to let the world know about the top-notch quality of the Italian Fine Pastry. Matilde Vicenzi is a premium manufacturer of fresh and assorted pastries, shortbreads and cookies. Its workhorse is undoubtedly the famous Puff Pastry, also known as Millefoglie di Matilde: its recipe is contained in Matilde’s recipe book, a source of inspiration for today’s sweet creations, too. The Millefoglie di Matilde has become the icon of Matilde Vicenzi baking industry, since is the only puff pastry in the market that contains 192 thin crispy layers of fine puff pastry with butter: a layer of butter is put between the folds of puff pastry dough, and then the dough is gently folded back on itself many times. If you’ve never tried it but now you can’t do without it, you can visit Matilde Vicenzi’s stand at SIAL: 5A G 140.


Some history

That of Matilde Vicenzi is the typical Italian story, since it is a family story. All begins in 1905 in San Giovanni Lupatoto, in Verona, where Matilde started to produce a small but exquisite line of pastries, ladyfingers, amaretti and sfogliatine, which recipes are still preserved in the famous Ricettario, or recipe collection, handwritten by Matilde herself.

Matilde’s child, Angelo, and grandchildren – Giuseppe, Mario e Beppina – grew up all passionate about the art of pastry, thanks, obviously, to the woman herself. Particularly thanks to Giuseppe, there is an expansion from artisanal baking operation to small-scale industry. Then, thanks to many years of hard work, in the 1960s the dream was finally fulfilled: Giuseppe eventually industrialized the artisanal manufacturing process, and of course Giuseppe was leading the company. 

From then on, the company has manufactured puff pastry industrially for both the national and the international markets.
