Torta Della Nonna: A Collection of the Best Homemade Italian Sweets
Italy isn't tremendously well known abroad for sweets and desserts, but I personally love to explore this part of their cuisine when I have the chance to visit. I first saw this book in a small bookstore in Florence and immediately knew it deserved a place in our collection.
From the Publisher:
Torta della Nonna brings together the best Italian sweets recipes from Emiko Davies' books, Florentine, Acquacotta, and Tortellini at Midnight, plus five brand new recipes.
Across eight chapters, this stunning collection features classic well-known recipes, as well as family recipes passed from generation to generation. Recipes include sweet Italian breakfasts (including Lemon and ricotta cake, Italian brioche croissants, and Little custard and quince jam pies); classic treats from nonna's oven (Hazelnut cake, Chocolate and amaretti flan, Stuffed peaches); snacks (Rosemary and sultana buns, Sweet breadsticks, Strawberries and wine); biscuits (Red crown biscuits, Almond biscotti, Polenta biscuits); recipes for celebrations (Florentine cake; Honey and nut pastries; Chocolate-filled sponge roll); treats to eat with a spoon (Baked rice pudding; Coffee-laced ricotta; Zuppa Inglese); frozen treats (Milk gelato; Plum sorbet; Gianduia semifreddo); and five essentials any Italian cook needs up their sleeve.
Full of beautiful photographs, all shot in Italy, and Emiko's evocative words, Torta della Nonna will bring the sweet tastes and romance of Italy into your home.
