This dish, born from the creativity of times when flour was a precious commodity, has evolved into a sought-after dish, symbolizing conviviality and tradition.

Savor the history and authentic taste of one of the gems of Italian cuisine.

Culinary Uses

Borlengo, when consumed, should have a straw-yellow color, a crumbly texture, and a characteristic flavor and aroma from the "cunza," the filling placed inside. The classic presentation of Borlengo is a wedge of a circle about a quarter the size of the "Sun," the pan in which it is cooked. Borlengo should be eaten hot.
