Riccardo Gualtieri is the owner of fourth generation pastry shop that began in the charming and affluent district of Porta Romana in 1933. Today his daughter Ginevra also takes part in the managing and directing of the store.
In 1933 Pasticerria Gualtieri became well known to locals for its ‘Iris Cake’ – its name Iris in honour of Florence with its symbol ‘Il Giglio’ being the Iris. The Iris cake is made with out flour. This cake is still made on request at the Pastry store and is well known not only in Italy but by the rest of the world
In May of 2013 Riccardo decided to revise the recipes offered at his store replacing them with ingredients for those those suffering food allergies and intolerances. More than a job this dedication has become a passion and a mission to find special ingredients for those who did not have sweet pleasures readily available.
It is here where he invented the recipe known as ‘7 senza’ 1. with out gluten 2. with out milk 3.with out butter 4. with out egg 5.with out margarine 6. with out yeast 7. with out sugar !
This passion has even bought Riccardo to go above and beyond! he also creates sweets for those who suffer Osteoperosis: and this is where his pastries have a base of ingredients rich in vitamins and minerals, with the highest quality of milk, almond,apricot and other top products.
