      Agree with a2cook! Very nice cake, very easy & gluten free!

      Very good! Tastes even better the next day. Simple, no-fuss recipe to make. Used 72% dark chocolate (Trader Joe's), which was a little too intense, so the only tweak I would make is to use slightly milder chocolate or reduce amount of chocolate from 200g to 125 - 150g.

Reviews about this book

  • Ms Marmite Lover

    Rachel's recipes are very relatable; they look messy and homely... intimate and domestic with casual chiaroscuro photographs of family moments.

Publishers Text

For ten years Rachel Roddy immersed herself in the culture of Roman cooking, but it was the flavours of the south that she and her Sicilian partner Vincenzo often craved - sun-ripened tomatoes, lemons, capers, anchovies, oregano, almonds, oranges - the quintessential ingredients of Sicilian cooking. Eventually the chance arose to spend more time at Vincenzo's old family house in a flat-roofed industrial town in south-east Sicily, and with it the opportunity to embrace the recipes, culture and food stories of the family's past. Making the best of fresh, seasonal ingredients, these are the simple, everyday family recipes that emerge from these two distant but connected kitchens in Sicily and Rome. From tomato and salted ricotta salad, caponata and baked Sicilian pasta to lemon crumble, honeyed peaches and almond and chocolate cake, they are the recipes that you will want to cook again and again until you've made them your own.
