Sweets and Confectioneries
The traditional sweets of Modena are not very sophisticated nor complicated; but are rather simple cakes and pastries which accompany the end of a meal, such as tortellini, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and zampone (pig's feet).
There are many different types of sweets in Modena's cuisine, but perhaps the most traditional and loved by the Modenese themselves are the Bensone, Tortelli, and Amaretti: all of which we would like to present to you in more detail.
