Just east of Bologna, Italy, the walled city of Ferrara is known for la torta tenerina, a kind of chocolate cake with an almost creamy interior and a thin, crisp crust It’s a simple confection, and even still, it’s said that every baker and home cook has his or her own recipe This version comes from Eleonora Masiero and Ennio Occhiali at Cusina e Butega, a combination bakery and restaurant.
Authentic meringues recipe, very easy and super tasty! Meringues are the foundation of many desserts (at my Italian family house in Bologna, we call them “spumini”). They are excellent when crumbled for stuffing ice cream cakes or whole, used as a decoration. They are also delicious eaten alone, perhaps covered with melted chocolate or flavored with coffee.
