Our Hazelnut Colomba is an all-Sicilian version of the classic Easter cake, but let's discover together something more about the origins of the Colomba.
The origin of the Easter Dove is linked to many legends, one of these, of the sixth century, tells that during the siege of Pavia King Alboino was offered by an old merchant a cake in the shape of a dove as a sign of peace.
Another legend dates back to the time of Frederick Barbarossa and the League of Lombard Communes, in the 12th century. A commander, observing two doves resting on the Lombard insignia during the battle, decided to infuse his men with the noble spirit of those birds, by having them make dove-shaped breads.
