Whether you’re looking for something fruity, nutty, creamy, chocolatey or boozy, you will be seduced by the sweet aromas of every bake.

From a joyful Caramelised Citrus Tart to a classic Torta Caprese, this is a stunning celebration of the sweet things in life, and is guaranteed to bring a slice of Italy into your home.

This is an utterly beautiful book celebrating the very best in Italian-inspired desserts. Letitia Clark adores sweet things, we love her assertion:

“There can be no denying that each day is made infinitely better if we live it in the knowledge that somewhere, tucked away in a cupboard, box, or tin, there are some biscuits or a bit of cake”

The content is divided into: Biscuits, Tarts, Cakes, Sweets by the Spoon, Yeasted and Fried, Gelato and Gifts. Each section is introduced and each recipe is carefully described, and beautifully photographed, plus notes and tips to ensure you get the best possible results.

There are so many delicious recipes including, Amaretti, Ricciolini (Chewy Lemon and Almond Biscuits), Caramelised Citrus Tart, Caramelised Apricot, Almond and Orange Blossom Upside-Down cake, Perfect Pure Panna Cotta, Tiramisu, Sparkling Lemon Sorbetto in Lemons, Marzipan Fruits and so much more!

The additional photography is sublime, this book is a glorious opportunity to escape to a world of sunshine and sweet desserts! We loved it, Highly Recommended!
