The gianduiotto (or also giandujotto) is one of the symbols of the finest Turin confectionery art. The giandojòt (as it is called in Piedmontese), with its unmistakable shape of an overturned boat, is made from a type of chocolate called gianduia. Gianduia or gianduja is a type of chocolate mixture born in Turin in 1806. Its creation is attributed to the ingenious Turin chocolatiers who, during the economic blockade ordered by Napoleon for the products of the British industry and its colonies, replaced the 'now very expensive cocoa with Langhe round gentle hazelnut (cheaper and easier to find). This is how this delicious dough was born.
