  • the kitchen boy who, legend has it, invented pannetone
  • the sweet biscuits they call ossi di morto – bones of the dead

The book contains three recipes with clear, step-by-step instructions, so you can try cooking up some popular Italian dishes for yourself. As they say in Italy, Buon appetito! – Good appetite!
