Join me for an afternoon to bake some of my favorite desserts from my cookbook “Southern Italian Desserts”. In this class we will make desserts that are typically prepared for the holidays in Southern Italy. We will bake two different cookies, Mostaccioli and ciambella all’arancia from Calabria, quaresimali from Puglia,, bocconotti, pasta frolla filled with almonds, chocolate and Christmas spices, and we will conclude with cannoli filled with homemade ricotta as they do in Palermo at Christmas time. This class will get you ready for your holiday baking.
