Rango Pitta 'Mpigliata is a typical Calabrian dessert originating in the province of Cosenza. The origins of this delicious sweet date back to the distant 1700s when it was mainly prepared for weddings. Nowadays, it is more commonly found during the Christmas holidays.
The name "pitta 'mpigliata" derives from the Hebrew and Arabic word "pita," which means flattened or pressed. It is a dry dessert that does not contain any creams inside which is why it is often enjoyed with a sweet fortified wine.
At Rango, the production of dried figs and regional sweets is an art crafted with utmost care and attention to detail. The entire process adheres closely to the treasured family recipes, safeguarded and passed down through generations.
