Bon appetit!

* This just in,
re "Bigne' di San Giuseppe":
"PS. però il bignè di san Gius. (a Roma) è fritto e con la crema dentro quelli li chiamiamo o bignè e basta o éclaires (:francais) alla panna, al cioccolato, al caffè, nocciola, pistacchio etc.. secondo fantasia."
Thanks to the dearest Roman of them all!
Anbody out there wants this translated?
(At your risk, though!)

  10. Paris:
    I think the Austrians use the term "Plundergebäck". I shall enquire with the proper authorities, do need a bit of time for that, though (somehow business always curtails pleasure, rats!). :-)))
