Pic Today 1/5/10
When pastry becomes art, Sicilian style . . .
My good friend, John, drove to Chicago to stock up for the holidays, and spent $500 in and along Harlem Avenue (famous for its Italian shops and restaurants) for groceries, espresso coffee and Sicilian delicacies.
(After all, he was born in Palermo!)
Fortunately he brought back a CASSATA SICILIANA, a luscious almond pastry adorned with candied fruits, from the famous Palermo Bakery to share with his non-Italian friends.
As delicious to eat as beautiful to behold. MOLTO BELLA.
Thank you, John.
