Italian Deserts & Treats

220 students

Welcome & Overview

I have so many fond memories of sitting outside a café in Sicily with the most wonderful fresh espresso and sampling the most colourful and flavourful sweet treats.
What I find intriguing about Italian baking is not only ingredients used but how they are used for example, pistachio ground down and used as a replacement for flour in the pistachio and orange cake, olive oil used instead of butter as the base for the lightest apple cake, egg whites and sugar whipped up to a frenzy and folded into ground almonds to make the lightest Amaretti. And let’s not forget the classic panna cotta – and in my case I make mine with yoghurt for that wonderful extra little bite.
These are all tasters of what lies ahead here in my Italian Deserts and Treats course
I’ve also added in some little recipes from my kitchen to accompany your wonderful treats. So, I show you how to make affogato, caffè corretto and limoncello.
So, let’s get baking! And Cook with Curiosity with me, Catherine Fulvio
Buon Appetito!

How to get the most out of this course

The course is structured as follows:

  • Audio instruction, brief chat and tips for each recipe
  • A Cook with Curiosity section, where there are more printable sheets with lots of detailed information regarding the cooking processes and much more. So do make sure you check that section out.

I would encourage you to start at the beginning and take each recipe one by one. At the end of each recipe, make some notes with regards to how you did. What was your feedback on the recipe?
We all have different tastes, maybe you added more sweetness into the dish or maybe you added more seasoning, or changed some ingredients to suit your tastes. I would encourage you to make notes to this effect so that when you are repeating the recipe you have a perfect recipe for your taste.
And do share photographs of your finished dish, tag me, Catherine Fulvio, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #CatherineFulvioOnlineCooking and #cookwithcuriosity
