In the immortal words of Sophi Dahl from "Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights "stolen, stolen, stolen...from the old Joy of Cooking".  My mother used to serve these to her grandchildren for Easter when they hunted for eggs, and they were a huge hit with the Italian guests at Tatiana’s wedding.


This makes a wonderful condiment for chicken salad or for stuffing deviled eggs. I served it with chilled poached chicken and finely sliced fennel.


Delicious sugar cookies, perfect for decorating!


This is a riff on a recipe from Pile Ou Face in Paris.  Xocopili is a spicy chocolate invention of Frederic Bau from Valrhona.  It is made from 72%Venezuelan chocolate mixed with pimente d’esplette, cardamom, cumin, curry, paprika and salt.  Oh yes some sugar too.  These  can be done several hours in advance and then baked at the last minute.

Delicious and easy to prepare.  


Adapted from Serena Santalomazza's recipe via quaderni golosi


This is from the Italian version of Cucina Italiana.  It is worth getting their app, as they have some terrific recipes that you just don't see in the US.  And they can be very easy.  I prefer using Panko which, for this recipe, I throw in a blender to make it a bit finer.  But if you have made your own bread crumbs, that will work out fine as well. If you have whites from extra large or jumbo eggs, then just use two whites

I make these ahead, freeze on a sheet  and then keep them in freezer bags.  Deep fry them straight from the freezer.  You can fry in a non EVOO olive oil or-my preference-grapeseed oil.  Grapeseed oil has a very high burn point so it can be filtered and used several times for frying. You can also use half olive oil and half grapeseed oil. 

These can be served hot or at room temperature. This recipe can be easily doubled.
