I find it amazing that so many people are multi-talented. How some people can sing and act. Take Tony Bennett for example, did you know he was a wonderful artist? He is! That’s why I wasn’t surprised when I bit into an Almondina Cookie.Yuval Zaliouk was a world renown music conductor and for the past two decades has been the owner of Almondina Cookies.
Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves
include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved
his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau
Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and
gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this
exquisite, crunchy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds, the
natural sweetness of plump raisins and the warmth of vanilla.
“Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandma Dina kept the
one for Petit Gateau Sec a total secret until the end of her life. Only then
did she finally reveal the secret to her daughter, Ahuda, my mother.”
“It is with her blessing and with pride that my family shares these
delicious, healthful wonders with your family,” says Yuval.
I am so happy Yuval decided to share his grandmother’s secret cookie recipe with the world. My family and I enjoyed the crunchy almond filled cookies very much. The added texture of the fruit gives the cookie a freshness and chewiness that surprises you! I enjoyed my cookies with coffee. These cookies are perfect with any beverage or by themselves. The low salt and low sugar content make them great for anyone needing to cut back on sweets but are still looking to enjoy a flavorful snack. The cookie flavors are too many to name. But my favorite was the sesame. For a complete list of all of the cookie flavors available visit Almondina
