Just north of Bologna in northern Italy is the town of St Agostino. It is here that Alessandro & Marco started an ice cream shop in 2013. With a passion for all things natural, they focused on making simple, natural ice cream daily. As they explored the origin of each ingredient they used, they became fascinated with the origins of chocolate.
They now strive to make chocolate with just a few carefully selected ingredients. They process it as little as possible to preserve the distinctive qualities of the raw materials. Their craftsmanship lies in the simple, respectful and patient processes they use.www.ruketchocolate.com
The Ruket chocolate mould is designed to reflect the block-work of the Palazzo dei Diamanti in nearby Ferrara, which has pyramid shaped bricks on the exterior walls.
