It is always refreshing to see passionate home cooks share their love for food and Francesca Morgan has done just that. Recently written on her blog ‘Almost Italian’ Francesca has shared her love for the recipe cuddureddi siciliani biscuits that are featured in My Taste of Sicily. As an avid collector of Italian cookbooks, she described this recipe as ‘the most appealing of all the versions in my collection’ and noted the biscuits ‘contain all the essence of Sicily in one Christmassy filling: almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, figs, sultanas and currants, orange peel and marmalade, cinnamon and cloves, dark chocolate and vanilla, with a pastry moistened with Marsala’. We would like to thank Francesca for sharing such a wonderful piece of writing with the online community and at such a great time of the year.
