Biscuits and Cakes by San Miniato Monks in Florence

San Miniato al Monte shopsWho said that the Monks make only medicines and use only strange herbs? Just few months ago I had a great surprise. While I was wandering into the San Miniato al Monte pharmacy, run by the local monks, I discovered, among the usual oil, herbs and creams (that I adore too), some very inviting bags of chocolate biscuits. I was said Frate Ildebrando is the chef of this sweet biscuits and chocolate cakes. As I have sweet tooth I immediately bought some biscuits that I found so delicious that now I cannot miss these sweets anytime I go up to San Miniato al Monte Church. Of course in Florence, Tuscany.
