Dolce quanto basta
Author: Gabriele De Benetti
Esistono passioni che fioriscono lentamente, ma ci sono anche amori che sbocciano in un istante e che danno subito frutti dolcissimi: è questo il caso di Gabriele che si è cimentato con la pasticceria per la prima volta pochi anni fa, ma che da allora non si è più fermato. Tra Preparazioni di base, I classici, I friabili, I cremosi e I salati, sfogliando queste pagine troverete la sua storia raccontata in prima persona, ricetta dopo ricetta: dal crumble assaggiato da ragazzino in Inghilterra alla Torta della nonna che chiudeva i pranzi della domenica in famiglia, dalle tartellette Louvre per volare a Parigi col pensiero alla torta Andrea con cui ha vinto la finale, ma anche tutte le ricette di base con le varianti migliori da sperimentare e accostare per creare da soli dei dessert indimenticabili.

Three cakes in one, this is every cake-lovers dream! Composed of just eggs, sugar, flour, butter and milk, and with a super simple preparation method, at first glance these recipes look just like any other cake recipe. But the magic in these cakes is in the cooking. Baked at a low temperature, the cake mixture divides itself into three layers, each with a distinct texture and taste: a dense, moist cake base; a delicate cream filling; and a light and fluffy sponge to top it off. The result is a cake like you've never tasted before - an explosion of textures and flavours in a moreish cake you just can't have one bite of!
First published in 1891, Pellegrino Artusi?s La scienza in cucina e l?arte di mangier bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi?s death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print. Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil or lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor ? humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes. Artusi?s masterpiece is not merely a popular cookbook; it is a landmark work in Italian culture. This English edition (first published by Marsilio Publishers in 1997) features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa.
