Dolci Evasioni: typical Sicilian organic and solidarity products.
The Dolci Evasioni are typical products of Sicily , the result of a solidarity project of the social cooperative L’Arcolaio which, since 2003, aims to build social and work integration paths for prisoners, young immigrants and other disadvantaged people.
In our laboratory at the Syracuse prison a team that includes about ten inmates creates confectionery products with passion and care organic and gluten-free . The ingredients used come from local farms and from fair trade .
Our recipes are genuine and are based on few quality ingredients, without the use of preservatives or artificial colors. The goodness of our products is also guaranteed by the use and enhancement of the excellence of our territory : almonds, citrus fruits, carobs, Ispica sesame (slow food presidium), wild fennel .. . each of our products preserves and tells our Sicily.
Dolci Evasioni also use raw materials from the social agriculture project Frutti degli Iblei , with which L’Arcolaio recovered some uncultivated land located in the heart of the Iblei Mountains. On these uncontaminated hills we grow Mediterranean aromatic plants organically, such as thyme, sage, and oregano, and we carefully harvest wild fennel, calendula and other spontaneous varieties typical of the Iblei. In the laboratory set up a few kilometers away we dry and pack our herbs, but also vegetables and fruit from small local farmers , whose work we aim to enhance through construction of collaborative networks .
Dolci Evasioni includes natural and toasted almonds, baked goods such as almond pastes and gluten-free cookies, dried herbs and vegetables, and condiments such as flavored salts and pesto. Among the latest products included in the catalog, biscuits with carob flour and cinnamon, gomasio with sesame di Ispica Slow Food presidium and aromatic herbs, wild fennel pesto.
