Italian cooking expert Liz Franklin offers delicious recipes inspired by Italy's coffee bars. Liz introduces you to the best way to brew coffee at home, and lists Italian coffee from espresso to caffe freddo. Her recipes start with Cookies and Biscotti, including Baci di Dama (almond biscuits with chocolate butter filling) and Toasted Hazelnut Florentines. Little Pastries are perfect with a long coffee. Try Bocconotti (chocolate and almond cakes) or Crostatine di Frutta di Basco (woodland fruit tartlets). Tarts and Cakes include Torta di Mandorie e Pistachio (almond and pistachio cake) and Crostata di Pere e Cioccolato (chocolate and pear tart)--a great dessert. Finally, Liz's Savory Bites are perfect for a light meal. Try Salatini con Ricotta e Spinaci (ricotta and spinach rolls) or Piadine con Ruccola Taleggio e Pesto (rocket and taleggio flatbreads). *Indulge in Italian coffee culture at home with over 30 delicious recipes for cookies, cakes, savory panini, and more. *Tempting photography by Peter Cassidy.
