How did I pick the recipes for this project? First I searched online for the most popular (or representative?) Italian dishes. I started from there. One other thing was my personal preference. I wanted to try preparing many of these recipes for a long time (such as the “pizza napoletana”, the “tiramisu” or the “lasagna”). But in a couple of cases, I just went with a dish just because I liked the name. I liked how it sounded. The “sbrisolona” is one of these 😊.
For some weird reason, I thought that if I had the “sfogliatelle”, I should also do the “sbrisolona”. They kind of sound similar, right? Or, at least, they start with an “s” and a consonant. I like words like that in Italian. Always! But… if I only had known that for this recipe I would have to use cornmeal, maybe I would have chosen another one 😄. Cornmeal is one of those few ingredients that I don’t like that much. Especially on sweet recipes! But I tried to do the best anyway.[Read more…] about Cooking in Italian (Week 8) Sbrisolona
