torta caprese

Last year the husband and I went to Casa Caldesi, a wonderful cooking school tucked away in a tiny London street, and learned to make a few authentic Italian dishes. It was his birthday present, and I highly recommend it, we had a brilliant time and met lovely people.
On the menu was a fiery poussin cooked with a brick, lovely roast potatoes, a salad and last but not least, the torta Caprese with amaretto cream. Although we have never made any of the main course again, the cake has been an instant hit, and it has become a regular at home. It has the advantage of being flourless, but don't be fooled, it's not the kind of cake you can have a second helping of!

Alas, I'm afraid the pinnies sewing project will have to wait a while longer...

  1. I know the place you mean (near VV Rouleaux?) The dessert looks amazing. Flourless chocolate cake is pretty much my favourite thing. I hate to admit this but I probably could do two pieces. (Pig!)
