Cameo – Local sweets to please yourself

My first association with this small shop named Cameo (in Russian it sounds like Kameya) is the amazing, breath-taking flavours. Just in case you are on a diet, you can use Cameo as an aromatherapy spot :). Notes of chocolate, fresh cookies, candies, toffees and pastry mixed together, creating the most relaxing aroma in the world.

What I prefer to buy there? My old favourites are desiccated fruits in chocolate, for instance plums, raisins or cumquat, ginger and fantasy cookies and so-called Spanish pies. Spanish pies are made from dried fruits and nuts. The funny thing is that I have never seen such a dessert in Spain. However, I personally believe that the recipe is very close to Italian panforte. Nevertheless, Spanish pies are great. 

Eventually, I always have a dilemma while visiting Cameo, should I discover something new, or it is better to choose something that I’m already in love with :).

I should admit that Cameo is not a cheap place for shopping for sweets, first of all because they use natural and organic ingredients. However my point is – it’s better to buy less chocolate or cookies, but these sweets would be of the best quality.
