Description

An authentic guide to the festive, mouthwatering sweets of Southern Italy, including regional specialties that are virtually unknown in the US, as well as variations on more popular desserts such as cannoli, biscotti, and gelato. 
As a follow-up to her acclaimed My Calabria, Rosetta Costantino collects 75 favorite desserts from her Southern Italian homeland, including the regions of Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia, and Sicily. These areas have a history of rich traditions and tasty, beautiful desserts, many of them tied to holidays and festivals. For example, in the Cosenza region of Calabria, Christmas means plates piled with grispelle (warm fritters drizzled with local honey) and pitta 'mpigliata (pastries filled with walnuts, raisins, and cinnamon). For the feast of Carnevale, Southern Italians celebrate with bugie ("liars"), sweet fried dough dusted in powdered sugar, meant to tattle on those who sneak off with them by leaving a wispy trail of sugar.
With fail-proof recipes and information on the desserts' cultural origins and context, Costantino illuminates the previously unexplored confectionary traditions of this enchanting region.

      • source: Alice Medrich, author of Bittersweet and Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts
      • content: "Rosetta has given us a sweet and soulful taste of the land and culture of Southern Italy-flavors and fragrances practically leap off the page. From the simplest three-ingredient walnut cookies (that you will want to jump up and make immediately, as I did) to more elaborate celebration desserts-all are made doable with well-written recipes and beautiful photos. Fig syrup and dolci di noci now have a permanent place in my repertoire."

        With this stunning collection, author and cooking instructor Constantino (My Calabria) seeks to preserve the history and craft of Southern Italian pastries. In five regional chapters, she shares recipes for popular and lesser-known desserts such as cannoli Siciliani, la pastiera Napoletana (Easter pie), and crostata al gelo di mellone (watermelon pudding tart). Though Constantino claims otherwise, many recipes will be too challenging for novices. Pastry enthusiasts and fans of Gina DePalma's Dolce Italiano: Desserts from the Babbo Kitchen and Francine Segan's Dolci: Italy's Sweets, however, will want to start cooking immediately. VERDICT A notable addition to Italian dessert cookbooks. Highly recommended.
