What if a cake was a book? We imagine that it would be a work by Gabriele D'Annunzio. Rather, two books: the Child of Pleasure (Il Piacere) and the Victim (L’Innocente). While our first love is the art of pastry making, we also love literature. And so we have decided to combine them by creating two very special single portions in honor of the great Italian writer:
While the Victim has a round yet delicate taste with its cheesecake and caramel filling, the Child of Pleasure instead has a more decisive taste, with hazelnut cream and milk chocolate Namelaka.
They are original, refined, and totally irresistible. Like a great book.
When flavors meet involuntary memory they call back memories.
Marcel Proust recounted it perfectly in a passage from In Search of Lost Time
that rendered madeleines eternal. It happens when we find ourselves reliving a foregone moment when we least expect it, as if we were really there. This can happen when tasting traditional desserts, especially Torta della nonna. Just a few simple ingredients (shortcrust pastry with butter, lemon custard, pine nuts and almonds), and in an instant we are children again.
