Pasticciotto stands out among the wide range of Salentinian pastries, made by Luisa for the breakfast buffet. Pasticciotto, which we do recommend to eat hot, is a shortcrusut pastry sweet, traditionally filled with custard and black cherry, which has been revised throughout the years.
Fruttone is another typical Salentinian sweet made out of shorcrust pastry, filled with marmalade and almond paste, and topped with chocolate frosting. At breakfast guests can also taste Mustazzoli, almond biscuits dipped in chocolate frosting and the traditional Pastarelle, the biscuits, meant to be dipped in milk, Salentinian mums used to make for their children breakfast.
Fresh and syruped fruit, a selection of fruit and fresh-squeezed juices, rusks, butter, cereals, different types of marmalade, honey, yoghurt, bread, eggs, different kinds of cheese and cured-meats are the other delicacies on the buffet.
