Description: Who would dispute that the Italians know how to enjoy the sweet things in life? Be it ice-creams, cakes, chocolates, coffee or nougat, they always seem to get it just right. Now, at last, in In Poke Vita the good life -- one of our favorite Italian cooks and bakers, Ursula Ferrigno, reveals their secrets. 

This is more than just a cookbook -- it is a volume of pure, uninhibited culinary pleasure. There are classic Italian puddings, such as panna cotta with caramel syrup, and cream and marsala trifle; there are favourite cakes, including spiced Christmas fruit cake, rum cake, and hazelnut and chocolate cake; and there are all kinds ol biscuits, from Florentines and macaroons to spiced Christmas cookies. 

But arguably the sweet things that the Italians make best are ice creams and sorbets. Whether you prefer a vanilla or a fig ice-cream, an apricot sorbet or a lemon or orange water ice, there is something here for you. And for those who really like to indulge their sweet tooth, there are treats such as honey balls, figs stuffed with almonds and chocolate truffles. 

Tarts, pastries and breads complete the picture of all good things Italian.
