A "Definitive" Italian Dessert Cookbook??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Greetings All -
I have been away for too long (stuff happened, mostly good), and need help locating a 'definitive' Italian Dessert cookbook - if such an item exists? I have excellent Italian cookbooks, but their dessert sections are rather limited. I saw the Food Network special on Italian holiday cooking, and it motivated me to see what I could find. Any help would be very much appreciated - even if the text is not in English.
Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

"Definitive" Italian Dessert Cookbook

Thanks very much 'M'. I found "The Italian Baker", but no hits on simply "Dolce"? There are two English books titled "La Dolce Vita" however? Is the "Dolce" not in English?
Cheers,

I believe the book might actually be "Dolci" "The Fabulous Desserts of
Italy" by Virginie and George Ebert. I highly recommend it, and there are quite a few copies out there. Don't go to Amazon....for some reason the only one they have is a used copy for $172.00! There are several used copies at www.alibris.com for $3.00.
