In "Caffe Italia", Italian cooking expert Liz Franklin offers over 30 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 Tarts are perfect with a long coffee. Try Bocconotti (chocolate and almond cakes) or Crostatine di Frutta di Bosco (woodland fruit tartlets). Big Tarts and Cakes include Torta di Mandorle e Pistachio (almond and pistachio cake) and Crostata di Pere e Cioccolato (chocolate and pear tart) - a great dessert. Finally, Liz's Savouries 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).
