Gubana is a renowned specialty that has its origin in the green valleys crossed by the river Natisone, creating a passage of singular beauty just a few kilometres east of Udine. It's the sweet symbol of Friuli, the gift to wish prosperity and wealth.
It owes its name to its characteristic shape of a spiral: in fact "gubat", in the local dialect, means wrapping. The old method of Gubana handed down over time, is faithfully revived by Vogrig.
Made of sweet dough yeast, hand-wrapped on itself to take the typical spiral form, contains within it a rich filling of chopped hazelnuts, walnuts, raisins, pine nuts. The ingredients are in total 19, blended with ancient wisdom. The Gubana, which requires three days of work to be prepared, is left to rise up to the classic volume, then placed in an oven. Cooking takes place at moderate temperatures for about 50 minutes. Absolutely free of dyes and preservatives, maintains its fragrance and goodness for months, if kept in a cool and dry place.Further information
