Author: Alessandra Dammone
Photographers: Colin Dutton
Translator: Richard Sadleir


Stories of Moors, amours and epicures. Cake-making in the Veneto is a complex matter. At first glance it may seem neglected, almost absent, but a closer look reveals ancient roots and some true marvels. Tiramisù, pandori, bussolai buranelli, zaleti, St. Martin’s biscuits, fave dei morti, fritole and galani.
Its pastries are essentially simple. Made from a few ingredients, but delicious.
Sometimes a little countrified. Shunning complications.
Just like the people. Concrete. Direct. And straight to the heart.
