Melissa Forti is The Italian Baker. In her tea room in an idyllic medieval town near Tuscany, she bakes beautiful cakes that combine Italian traditions with her own modern twists. This book is a collection of tarts, cakes, loaves, biscuits, and coffee-time treats born out of Melissa's signature style of baking. Every recipe is a treat, taking in popular Italian ingredients like olive oil, mascarpone, almonds, and fresh fruit.
Melissa gives perennial favorites like carrot cake, brownies, chocolate cake, and cheesecake a fresh, Italian makeover. Every cake and cookie tells a story, reflecting Melissa's travels, her passion for good food, and the love of her Italian heritage.
