Crostata di Ricotta e

Biscotti di Natale

Sunday, December 11, from 2:30- 5:00 pm
In Person

Join Asse at Rebecca's Bakery to make 2 traditional Italian sweets - crostata di ricotta and biscotti cookies, just in time for “le feste di Natale”.

Crostata di ricotta is typical of the mountainous areas of the South and uses ingredients that shepherds could easily find. Even today in some of these areas the ricotta cake is the dessert of Sunday, as well as of the Christmas and Easter periods.

The origin of the Biscotti in Italian Cantucci dates back to at least the sixteenth century. The name seems to derive from “cantellus”, in Latin “piece or slice of bread”, a salty biscuit that Roman soldiers already consumed during military campaigns.

Asse will guide our group through the crostata and cookies making process. Then it will be your turn to make your own treats to bring home. 

Please bring an apron if you would like to use one.
