I have to throw a plug in for my friend's book-
"Sweet Sicily, the story of an Island and her Pastries" by Victoria Granof
It was published this past fall by ReganBooks and has a great collection of
cookies and pastries, cakes, spoon sweets (watermelon gelato - yum!)
confections and liquers. Victoria toured Sicily interviewing pastry chefs, so the recipes gathered here are authentic, along with fantastic color photos and a historical overview of how conquering cultures have left their imprint on the island's food. Included are recipes for cannoli, cassata cake, frutta di martorana (marzipan fruit) and my favorite- Trionfo di Gola - "Triumph of Gluttony" - that you just have to see to believe!
