"Forti has a warm and enthusiastic voice, urging her readers to eat a slice of cake every day and happily pronouncing any recipe with a fruit or vegetable component a nutritious breakfast. While I disagree with Forti's Cake Diet approach to life, there's no denying how adorable she is or how unbelievably good these recipes are. . . The Italian Baker has both simple recipes and fancy recipes for those occasions that call for a lovely treat that is a bit more inspired. I can see myself turning to The Italian Baker any time I want to make something really special for my family and friends." - Powells.com 'On the Table' blog
About the Author
Born in Rome and having lived in Los Angeles and London, Melissa Forti taught herself how to bake and started to collect baking books old and new, to learn about the art of baking through the ages, and throughout the world. After settling in the magical town of Sarzana, situated between Cinque Terre and Tuscany, she opened a boutique bakery and tearoom where both locals and visitors enjoy her incredible, freshly baked cakes every day.

I started with Torta Caprese, a flourless chocolate cake that I’ve heard of for years, but never actually made. I was surprised at how easy it was to make, and absolutely blown away by the results. I made this for a church potluck, and let me just say there weren’t even crumbs left!! It is rich, moist, dark and absolutely, mind-blowingly amazing!! This is definitely my new favorite dessert ever!
Palle d’Inverno (Winter Snowball Cookies) are another recipe that is easy to make and delicious to eat, and the Meringhe Brutte ma Buone alle Nocciole (Ugly-But-Good Hazelnut Meringues) are so easy to make that my 14-year-old daughter whipped them up. They dance on the tongue with the lovely crispy outside, soft inside with chunks of roasted hazelnuts–buonissimo!
Bottom line? Run, don’t walk (or let your fingers do the walking online!) to your nearest bookstore and grab a copy of this top-notch cookbook and you’ll be whipping up these delights for yourself in no time. Trust me, you’ll thank me later!
I received a copy of this book from Hardie Grant Publishing through Chronicle Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
