Biscotti Rustica

Biscotti Rustica

In the nineties, when I had Italophilia quite badly, I found an authentic Italian cookbook by Michele Scicolone which has the best biscotti recipes. You can modify a basic biscotti recipe according to your likes. I have made 4 varieties: coffee and chocolate, classic almond, cranberry and raisin, and fig and walnut using spelt flour.

    Oh my goodness! All those yummy things made with such care. Well done! Long live Rustica and Grace!

  2. Thanks Grant – all compliments accepted graciously!

  3. Grant, my partner, was to live only another 2 months. I continue with this project in memory of him, in honour of his beautiful encouragement of me; his joy in simplicity, his wisdom in the advice he gave me; how he inspired me just by fully listening, being present; his enthusiasm for food made with love and his creative spirit demonstrated through his own drawings, paintings and design sense. What a gift he was. I never met anyone like him… we shared magical times….and his gifts to me will resonate through the rest of my life and out into the world through whatever means I choose to give.
