Book review: Dolci, With Love

Words by Veronica Stanford

Recipes from the motherland.

Dolci, With Love isn’t just another cookbook, but a journey through the Italian way of life.

Promising 51 traditional recipes from the motherland, the book makes difficult desserts look rather simple.

Reducing most methods to less than 10 steps, even first-time cooks will feel confident in the kitchen. Divided into sections ranging from Pastries & Sweet Treats, to a whole segment dedicated to tiramisu, Dolci, With Love leaves no dessert untouched.

Filled with beautiful imagery of the Italian coastline, it also makes a very pleasing coffee table book for the culinary-challenged. But don’t be intimidated, if you’ve ever wanted to impress the family with homemade cannoli, now’s the perfect time to try. I recommend having a go with an Aperol Spritz in hand – like a true Positano local.
