You’ve got to listen to this, ascoltate questa! The day after I published my post on granita and brioche, my dear friend Emanuela rang me up to scold me: “Seriously, Silvia?”. Un paio di giorni dopo, after a couple of days she came up to my house with a rising dough which she mixed early in the morning before going to work - could I feel any worse? – and an ice cream maker to show me and our friend Sandra the following: 1) that granita can easily be homemade, 2) to add more shame, if possible, that incredibly delicious brioches can be baked at home too, and 3) that you can have fun during the whole process! Needless to say, both the granita and the brioches tasted much better than those you buy. Wish you could smell what I’m going to show you!
Che lezione, ragazzi! What a lesson! E che risate in cucina!! And what fun we had in the kitchen!
Good news is she made me try bake my own brioches. That’s what they looked like.
Not bad for a first attempt, don’t you think? Another couple of times and I can start up a new business in the States!!
Grande Manu!! Not only did she read my post, she also came for a live baking demo! Why don’t you move to Philadelphia with me for a couple of months?
Told you my friends can really cook!!
For your weekly PILLOLA D’ITALIANO, remember: the word “paio” (a pair, a couple), that is masculine in the singular, is irregular and turns feminine in the plural. (Un paio di scarpe will be due paia di scarpe)! Why do I always think about shoes, anyway?!
