Description
Now in paperback, this divine cookbook includes favorite Italian desserts: simple sweets served both at home and in trattorias and cafes throughout Italy. More than two dozen cookie recipes include authentic almond-laced Biscotti di Prato, classic sesame cookies known as Biscotti Regina, and lemony butter rings. Flaky tarts are filled with everything from fruit jams and Arborio rice to sweet berries and lemon and chocolate. Cooling, delicate Italian ices are intensely flavored with mint, sparkling white wine and peaches, and raspberries. To round out this scrumptious collection, Michele Scicolone has included recipes for simple fruit and cheese desserts, dessert sauces, explanations of Italian dessert wines and after dinner digestivi -- and, of course, how to brew a perfect cup of Italian coffee. This irresistible cookbook is sure to delight even the most discerning sweet tooth.<BR>-- La Dolce Vita was nominated as the Best Dessert Book of 1994 by the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP).<BR>-- Scicolone has written for the New York Times, Gourmet, and Washington Post, and has appeared on the CBS Morning Show, Good Morning America, and Cooking Live, which she has hosted on several occasions.
