as i mentioned last week, at the end of this month we’re off on holiday to italy and as a result i’m spending far too much time thinking about all foods italian. i normally focus on savoury dishes but a recent taste of some ricciarelli put paid to that.
ricciarelli are sienese almond biscuits and they are a taste of heaven. the ones i tried, courtesy of my boss who was just back from his own italian jaunt, had an intense almondy flavour and a soft almost macaroon-like centre. i was still eating the biscuit i was given when i started looking for a recipe that i could try, that’s how good they were!
