Sweets

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.
