In this post I have included photographs of some of my favorite desserts from my new cookbook “Southern Italian Desserts.” I can only share five pictures with you. All the photographs were taken by the talented Sara Remington who also did the photography for my first cookbook, My Calabria. The recipes in the book range from simple home desserts to the cutting-edge creations of Southern Italy’s finest pastry chefs. I’ve included desserts already well-known and loved in America, such as gelato and cannoli, as well as regional specialties virtually unknown in this country, and rarely, if ever, found in books, magazines, or online.
I’d like you to guess the name of the following desserts and the region they come from. Use any resource at your disposal and please reply with your answers in the comment section. I will let you know how many answered correctly. Everyone that names at least one dessert correctly (name of dessert and region) will be entered into a drawing for a free autographed copy of “Southern Italian Desserts.”
So, here we go with the first picture, some of my favorite cookies (hint: they belong to two regions that border each other).
What is the name of this dessert and where is it found?
Any idea on these pretty pastries?
Name this dessert and the region where it is found
Last one for you to guess! Doesn’t this cake look amazing? You will have the recipe soon as the book will be released on October 8, 2013 by Ten Speed Press.
Can you guess the name of the dessert on the cover of the book? I think this is the final revision for the book cover. It is going to the printer next week.
