Bunet alla piedmontese


Similar to crème caramel, bunet alla Piedmontese is a chocolate and amaretti dessert originally served at noble banquets in the 13th century.  “Bunet” comes from the Italian word “bonet” describing the hat shaped mold, although some believe it’s derived from the fact that it was the last thing you would eat during a meal, just as a hat is the last thing you put on when you leave a friend’s home.
