Gianduja, pronounced as (Jan-doo-yeah) is a famous Italian confectionary item from the Napoleon Era. It is a creation made from chocolate and at least 30% Hazelnut paste. Gianduja is so popular that you can often find it in many delicacies such as chocolate truffles, chocolate bar etc. Gianduja can be made with all kinds of chocolate like milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and ruby chocolate.
Named after a beloved character in a play at the time, the story of how Gianduja came to be is quite fascinating! Here’s how it goes: In the 1860s while the Italian government tried to handle the new nation after the Napoleonic wars, they levied high import taxes on several goods, including cocoa beans. This created huge panic among chocolatiers, which then pushed chocolatier Pier Paul Caffarel to create new recipes and experiment with chocolate and many ingredients like Hazelnuts. And thus, Gianduja was born.
