Home SWEET Home


Well it's Sunday (and it seems will continue to rain). Nothing better than to stay at home: to watch an old movie and taste a marvellous glass of Guido Gobino Chocolate [<-- In English too] -- In Torino chocolate was known since 1678 when production was been authorized by Royal Law. At the end of 1700 artigianal producer granted 350Kg of daily produtction and they started to export it in France, Germany, Austria and Suisse. Next time I'll go to talk about Gianduiotti: another chapter that concern Torino and Chocolate -- Nice week-end to everybody.

Ebbene è Domenica (e pare voglia continuare a piovere). Niente meglio che stare a casa: guardare un vecchio film e gustare un buon bicchiere del Cioccolato di Guido Gobino -- A Torino il cioccolato era conosciuto sin dal 1678 quando un Regio Decreto ne autorizzò la produzione. Alla fine del 1700 ne veniva prodotto, dalle molte cioccolaterie, ben 350 Kg al giono e iniziò la sua esportazione in Francia, Germania, Austria e Svizzera. La prossima volta parlerò dei Gianduiotti: un altro capitolo che concerne il binomio Torino e il cioccolato -- Buon fine settimana a tutti.

Your photograph makes the chocolate look good enough to eat. No pun intended.

The wicked pleasure of chocolate. Sitting inside with a glass of chocolate while it's raining outside sounds like a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, or any day.
