Ciao Biscotti is a collection of 44 authentic biscotti from Italian cooking expert Domenica Marchetti. Studded with nuts, adorned with chocolate, or dotted with dried fruit, biscotti, Italy's unique twice-baked cookies have a crunchy, toasty, enduring appeal. Perfect for dunking into coffee, tea, or Vin Santo, they're easy to make; and transform a simple bowl of ice cream or sorbet into a special dessert. With savory ingredients swapped for the sweet ones, biscotti are a delicious accent to a cheese platter. Nibble on traditional flavors such as Hazelnut or Anise, coffeehouse neo-classics like Christmas Cranberry-Pistachio, tempting new versions such as Browned Butter and Toblerone, or savory ones, including Mountain Gorgonzola and Walnut, and taste the perfection of a classic cookie. Ciao biscotti!

Ciao Biscotti: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Celebrating Italy's Favorite Cookie based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
My family is a huge fan of biscotti. We adore Italian food, and biscotti is quintessential Italian. I, personally, don't have a huge sweet tooth, so was thrilled to see savory versions as well. Go with a classic almond or hazelnut, branch out with some chocolate-almond with pistachios, stracciatella, coconut-lime, cappuccino or even crispy pancetta, almond and aged asiago or cornmeal with rosemary and parmigiano! A few non-biscotti recipes are included as well such as hazelnut meringues and nutella sandwich cookies. Ciao Biscotti is a great cookbook for lovers of biscotti everywhere. Such a lovely variety of flavors and easy-to-read instructions combine with lovely photos to create a lovely little cookbook that I highly recommend. I received a copy of this book from Chronicle Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
