Italian Desserts to Live and Die For
You might think you already know everything about Italian food. Almost every day you cook spaghetti, lasagna and pizza for your family. You can also cook any food in olive oil and use lots of garlic. However, you haven’t lived until you’ve tasted Italian cuisine. The dessert order on the Italian table is called “dolce”, which means sweet. In the case of Italian desserts, they have many chocolates, cookies, and other tempting ambrosial offerings, ranging in flavor from slightly bitter to sweet. In general, Italian desserts are not very sweet and are accompanied by Italian wine.
Life and love will never be the same when Ladyfingers’ deliciously sweet blend of coffee and brandy is topped with cream made from eggs, mascarpone and Marsala wine in the Italian version of Tiramisu. Your taste buds will thank you and you will crave it forever.
Then you need to get into the Cannoli. It is made with flour shells as a pasta similar to cannelloni. An oblong shell filled with chocolate chips, ricotta, and candied fruit is usually sweetened with candied cherries. This precious food dates back a few thousand years.
There are many options, but another memorable italian dessert is biscotti. The cookie dough is baked not once, but twice for softness, it is topped with almonds and often coated in chocolate. These are for those who like to indulge in gastronomic delights. It’s no wonder that people around the world consider Italian food to be one of the tastiest and most delicious foods around. Not everyone can afford to travel to Italy to find them, but if you search for local Italian restaurants and scour their menus for these experts, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re a dessert junkie like me and you’re a little weak-kneed without foreign food at times, you should definitely check out these delicious Italian concoctions.
I agree if there is no dessert, why the meal in the first place? You should set a goal during dinner and that goal is dessert. Hey, I started my meal with dessert and had something else when I didn’t recommend it. You can hurt yourself, and blame me.
