Subtitled Sweet and Savory Recipes for Celebrating Italy's Favorite Cookie, Ciao Biscotti is a collection of 44 authentic biscotti recipes from Italian cooking expert Domenica Marchetti.
Studded with nuts, adorned with chocolate, or dotted with dried fruit, biscotti, Italy's unique twice-baked cookies have a crunchy, toasty, enduring appeal. Perfect for dunking into coffee, tea, or Vin Santo, they're easy to make; and transform a simple bowl of ice cream or sorbet into a special dessert. With savory ingredients swapped for the sweet ones, biscotti are a delicious accent to a cheese platter.
Nibble on traditional flavors such as Hazelnut or Anise, coffeehouse neo-classics like Christmas Cranberry-Pistachio, tempting new versions such as Browned Butter and Toblerone, or savory ones, including Mountain Gorgonzola and Walnut, and taste the perfection of a classic cookie.
A former newspaper reporter, Domenica Marchetti is the author of four cookbooks, including The Glorious Pasta of Italy, which was named one of the eight best single-subject cookbooks of the last 25 years by the editors of Cooking Light Magazine. Ms Marchetti is a founding member of the online magazine American Food Roots, and blogs about Italian home cooking on www.DomenicaCooks.com.
