I think my passion for cooking was born, as it often happens to children, from my passion for cakes and the desire of being able to always have available without having to wait for someone offered me.
The only solution was to learn how to prepare them on my own!
The first two to be tested, under the careful management of my mother, were the tart with jam and margherita cake.
Clearly prepared with the only kitchen manual in possession of my mother, that ofArtusi.
The ingredients for this cake, in its most essential version, are only four: potato flour, sugar, eggs and lemon peel.
Which are basically the same ingredients I use for lin my recipe although helped by some extra kitchen tool.
Today I almost always put it on the table without other frills that a decoration with icing sugar
but I do not deny that stuffed with a beautiful custard or a diplomatic is a bijoux!
ADVICES AND NOTES:
- The original voice of Pellegrino Artusi manual (the 576 - Simple Margherita cake) It is also here!
- The full text of the Pellegrino Artusi manual, Science in the kitchen and the art of eating well, (first edition 1891, publisher Landi) can be consulted, for example, here.
