Today is World Nutella Day! I'm a big fan of Michelle Fabio's Bleeding Espresso blog and the peperoncino and Nutella cake she cooked up sounds fabulous. I did a very restrained celebration, with Nutella and Kedem biscuits (they are a bit like Petit Beurre). I may make Nutella Bread tomorrow - it looks yummy.
I also searched for the Italian version of Nutella, which apparently tastes differently. It has been a couple years since I tasted the genuine article. I'm working on finding it here in Houston. No luck at Phoencia, my go-to grocery for international foods. However perhaps I can get to Spec's downtown to check out their stock this coming week.
For those who are interested in a little more history, here is the Wikipedia link and the Ferrero (Italian) link.
