Italian confectionery company specializing in the production of nougat and sweet truffles. Founded in 1885 by Giuseppe Sebaste, it is based in Grinzane Cavour.
Giuseppe Sebaste founded the company in 1885 in Grinzane Cavour (CN), after a period of work as a pastry boy in Alba. The main product of the Sebaste company is nougat. Contrary to the traditional Cremonese recipe, which involves the use of almonds, Giuseppe Sebaste uses hazelnuts; these fruits were easier to find in Piedmont as they were more widespread, and had a lower cost. The original recipe included (and still provides): honey, sugar, egg white and glucose cooked for 8 - 10 hours in a bain-marie in large cauldrons. At the end of cooking the hazelnuts are added.
Passion for 5 generations, delivered directly to your home.
For 5 generations, the history of the Sebaste family has been closely linked to that of the company. It's a story filled with enthusiasm for their work, passion for their products, and pride in their family heritage. "Tradition is a successful innovation," as Oscar Wilde said. These words encapsulate the reality of the Sebaste company, a perfect example of an Italian SME (Small and Medium-sized Enterprise): family-run, with the torch passing from generation to generation, highly specialized, innovative, deeply rooted in their local territory with a global market perspective. Despite maintaining continuity and respecting traditional recipes, the present and future are dynamic and continuously evolving. The ingredients used are of undeniable quality, selected with over a century of experience and unwavering attention. The production process remains as it has always been, respectful of traditional times and methods but combined with modern safety and hygiene measures for the finished product.
Hazelnuts are the main ingredient in Sebaste products. Therefore, it is crucial to pay the most scrupulous attention to the quality and processing of this precious fruit. Thanks to its over a century of experience, the Sebaste company knows how to choose the best hazelnuts and maximize their fragrance. The most crucial process for enhancing the goodness of hazelnuts is roasting. This is why this delicate process is performed in-house. Roasting reduces the moisture content of the hazelnut and allows it to be stripped of the outer skin. To ensure their freshness, Sebaste roasts the hazelnuts needed for production on a daily basis.
