Have you ever heard of Tiramisù? Here in Rome nearly every pastry shop has got it. Since Romans love sweets, the city is full of sweet shops. Our desserts have a reputation of being delicious rather than looking beautiful. Think of tiramisu, its appearance is a stark contrast of its mouthwatering taste. And not only have you got pastry shops but also bakeries. Many of them prepare biscuits, cookies and simple cakes, like crostata, jam pie . Romans also prepare a lot of desserts with hazelnut, gianduia for instance, chestnuts (marrons glacés, mont blanc, castagnaccio), chocolate, ricotta – our kind of cottage cheese – and Chantilly cream.
