Mattei was a craftsman of humble birth, but he played a leading role in the history of Italian cooking. They say that there are some secrets behind the factory’s Biscotti di Prato and cakes. Antonio Mattei’s secret ingredient of the Biscotti di Prato recipe is legendary. Our Biscuits Factory never stop but the recipe is the same... Today we deliver our sweetnesses in worldwide
