Get a taste of la dolce vita as Bake from Scratch travels to Italy, the home of tiramisù and the beloved Nutella. Our journey starts in Florence with a baking class in Giulia Scarpaleggia’s Tuscan kitchen, then we venture to Alba for a pasta primer with Fernanda Giamello. And the traveling doesn’t stop there! Our tasty travel piece, La Dolce Vita, explores Liguria, Toscana, Genoa, and more, savoring the sights and flavors of each region. Each feature is packed with Italian recipes that celebrate the multifaceted beauty of Italian cuisine, from our Essential guide to Tiramisù, to a deep dive on torte (classic Italian cakes, including our exquisite cover star, Torta di Suisine). Brian even takes readers on a Roman breakfast quest with Katie Parla, in search of Rome’s infamous cream-filled maritozzi and breakfast pizza. A feast for all the senses, this issue is just a small taste of all that makes Italy irresistible, and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
