'Desserts and Sweet Snacks'
The book "Desserts and Sweet Snacks: Rustic Italian Style" by Viana La Place, features a variety of recipes and attractive photos. "The recipes in this book take their inspiration from a number of sources, but Italy, and always Italy, informs the spirit of the book. Whether that inspiration is drawn from home cooks making magic with pantry staples or the fun fantasies of sidewalk cafe creations, an Italian sensibility is always present," La Place writes. Among recipes in the book are Warm Apple Panino, Pink Grapefruit Dessert, Rum Custard, Semolina Cake, Cantaloupe Crostata and Open Face Ice Cream Sandwich. FYI: Available at amazon.com.
