you haven't had the right cookies. all these chi chi joints that make these rock hard biscotti got it all wrong. my mom and aunts will blow you away with some of the cookies they make from scratch.

AMEN!! In fact, I conclude that the only value to attending bridal showers is that big-ass tray of Italian cookies that all the Nonnas made and contributed.

YES! - I have been thinking about this a lot lately... once that generation starts to dwindle, who will carry on all the traditions?

Last year I spent all day Christmas eve with my Nonna getting lessons (yes, I did take notes) on her signature dishes. And I am so glad I did that, because this year (for this first time ever) she did not hold Christmas eve dinner, as her health had begun to slide significantly.

theres this jewish cookie called "mandelbroidt" or mandel bread for a loose translation...
i friggin' hate it. its hard as a rock and hurts my teeth.
whenever i mention this at jewish family functions, everyone's like "but! but! its just like biscotti!" to which i reply "i hate that stuff too."

too hard. no good.

I feel Italian desserts were based on primitive dental extraction.

My Nona and Zia can't make desserts to save their lives.

Indian desserts, now there's something I can eat like pussy. Too bad I can't spell any of them.

It's because Italians use the same amount of salt and garlic in their main courses as they do in their desserts.

that's simple

... it's because in most proper italian cooking styles there is not much of a dessert element. with the possible exception of the north dessert in italy usually consists of fruits and espresso

rome, abruzzo, napoli, and even venezia are not where i've learned dessert skills.

of course there are exceptions and some regions specialize in desserts suck as canolli, zeppole, and even tiramisu. but for the most part the southern italian cuisine [that most people have come to love in north america] does not include an elaborate dessert

I'm the only one in the family that knows how to make all of my Nonna's cookies, desserts, breads, pastas, etc. Everyone else loves to eat them, but I'm the only one that spends time with her learning them.
