Best marzipan


The North African-inspired almond-and-sugar paste scented with rose essence—some say like a bar of soap—is not for everyone, but the quality of the fresh marzipan at VILLABATE PASTICCERIA is astonishing. It’s available in dozens of shapes that, by virtue of delicate hand-painting, ape fresh fruit and vegetables. A box makes an excellent gift for your foodie friends.
