The warm fragrance of winter baking

Published on 5 December 2018 | Category: Golosa Line

In winter, given the low temperatures and the reduced hours of light, we like spending more time at home or in welcoming and warm places. When meeting with friends to share a few hours together, organising long lunches or getting together for a chat and a bite we often go the bakery’s to get something tasty.

Occasions to sit down at the table with the company of others are certainly not lacking in the coldest months and every meal worthy of being remembered can only end with a dessert. But personal needs can be different: there are those who avoid milk derivatives because of intolerances, those who follow vegan cuisine, and who for food or health reasons is careful with the consumption of refined sugars. From the gubana from Friuli to the mandorlaccio from Puglia, through all the regional cuisines, we could draw an inviting map of the delicacies that accompany the festive days of these months.

The great news is that with Galatea ingredients we can please all, without giving up the triumph of flavours!

Thanks to nature, the winter season offers an extraordinary variety of fruits and fragrances which are perfect ingredients to make excellent desserts: consider, for example, apples, oranges and pears which blend well with traditional flavours such as those of chocolate or amaretti, becoming an inspiration for creating cakes and delicious biscuits. Let’s also wander on an imaginary journey through the Italian tradition which every year offers us recipes to which we cannot resist. A must during the Christmas season are the pandoro and the panettone which reach the peak of exquisiteness in artisan varieties prepared with the proper ingredients: thanks to our Golosa line you can have extraordinary results which are also beautiful to look at and which keep their structure unaltered for days. In fact, with our pre-prepared icings for baked goods, with and without egg white, you can easily widen your offer of leavened cakes that preserve their fragrance without the need for additives.

In previous posts we’ve talked about how the appearance and colour of what we eat influences our mind. Our perception of what tastes good often comes from our eyes as well as our tastebuds: if food is well-presented it tastes better too. And that’s not all: an interesting result of neurogastronomy research reveals, for example, that we tend to eat less, and less willingly, in a dark room, because we’re less ‘seduced’ by our sense of sight.

Once again, popular wisdom comes to our aid, confirming that the relationship between taste and sight really is important: how many times have we heard something described as ‘so good it’s a shame to eat it’? But some things are so delicious the real shame is not to eat them! With our philosophy of giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy sweet pleasures – even people with specific dietary requirements – we work to achieve all-round excellence in all our ingredients.
A growing focus on food as a source of wellness and gratification has led in recent years to a considerable increase in interest in the preparation and aesthetic presentation of every dish. Cake design – decorating cakes and pastries to make them look more appetising – has become a learnable art, indispensable not only on formal occasions like weddings and birthdays, but also in small everyday celebrations.

The new Golosa line supports the traditional ethical approach of Galatea’s experience, extending our already vast range of products for artisan ice cream and pastry-making with new items which can improve and facilitate the work of every professional in the sector. With a view to the creation of impeccable desserts, biscuits, panettoni, mousses and semifreddi, we have developed our new icings and glazes, ideal for decorating all your creations.
