Book "Caffè Florian Delicacies"
"Caffè Florian Delicacies" is much more than a cookbook, because it tells the history of the traditional Venetian sweets and cakes through images and recipes with all their correct ingredients. Esse, baicoli and zaeti biscuits, almonds brittle and candy fruits, prepared all year long, but also some sweet delicacies typical of special festivities of the year: galani, Venetian frittelle, fried cream and San Martin’s biscuit.
An enjoyable tribute to the excellence of simplicity with the recipes of Chef executive pậtissier Cristiano Strozzi and the watercolours by the artist artist and architect Adrian Tuchel, that give a sense of poetic suspension to a legendary place: the Caffè Florian.
The book is completed by a specific section “Around Venice” including suggestions and addresses of different Venetian places to discover the authenticity of the city and make the ordinary extraordinary.
A thoughtful gift and a not to be missed book for those who love sweet tasty delicacies or would like to try and prepare these recipes.
