Dolci in Famiglia
A Gourmet Journey Through Simple Italian Traditional Recipes
by Salvatore De Riso
It begins with a rich history of sweets: from ancient origins to the economic boom when Italian families acquired refrigerators and ovens for preserving and baking homemade desserts. A journey filled with anecdotes in which Salvatore De Riso guides us to discover where sfogliatelle and babà are born, who invented panettone, the origin of maritozzi, and much more...
Then, it continues by providing us with recipes for everything, sweet or savory, that should not be missing during moments of joy and family celebrations: children's breakfasts, snacks or parties for the little ones, a boat trip, or a picnic in the countryside. And, finally, what to whip up if a few friends drop by for dinner unexpectedly.
