So the internship in the pastry shop started 3 weeks ago. First thing to jump out at me is the incredible speed at which people work here, like lightning !
Pasticcini are exquisite Italian fine pastries. In the Italian tradition, assorted pasticcini are served as a dessert, as a cake alternative or on a variety of special occasions. Essentially they are bite size pastries.
Today I made Italian sugar cookies, also know as “biscotti di pasta frolla”, and decorate them with icing.
Jackie and I awoke bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning with the idea of continuing our registration process (we’ll blog about it when it’s finished…eventually!) and then visiting an old town, or castle, but alas, a late summer rain came down in buckets and ruined that idea.
