The contest, which has been taking place for 17 years now and is organized by the House of the In the and Festival of the pastry shops, has seen the participation of over 50 realities between pastry shops and ovens of Florence and its province. Among all the requests 30 finalists were selected. The Top 3 of the best Fiorentina crushed The race took place on February 8 at the Da Saba restaurant in Florence: each finalist brought 3 crushed to Fiorentina, in the classic or stuffed version, and the experts tasted the desserts without knowing the creator, assigning a vote from 1 to 10 to each slice.
