The Secrets of Baking with Olive Oil

Extra-virgin olive oil is not only a healthier alternative to butter, margarine and other fats, but also gives a characteristic flavor and silky texture to cakes, cookies and other baked goods. There are more than 700 varieties of olives cultivated in the world. Each one has a different flavor. In this book I am going to reveal the secrets of how to convert almost any recipe to olive oil, along with some of my favorite recipes for cakes, cookies, tarts and breads.

My Sweet Abruzzo: Recipes and Memories from Abruzzo

This book was self-published in 2009 and this is a new version.

The book is about the recipes and memories of the Italian pastries, breads and confections I enjoyed in every celebration (from Christmas to Weddings) of my childhood and I tried to recreate in my own kitchen to share with my sons and to anyone passionate about Italian cuisine. Like a meal at an Italian-American restaurant, most Italian cookbooks stop at tiramisu, biscotti and gelato. For me, this is where “My Sweet Abruzzo” begins, a place where every pastry, bread, and confection has a name, or an identity inseparable from local celebrations.
