The bakery's justly famed Brontesi - commonly known as Fior di Pistacchio - makes for a magnificent mid-morning pastry. Poetically named after Bronte, the area on the fertile slopes of Mount Etna where pistachios grow, its jewel-like hue is entirely thanks to the brilliant emerald green of the region's crop.

i luuuurv pistachios just can't seem to get good ones here - sounds really romantic (your trip to Sicilly) - like the sunds of Mt Etna.. did you happen to get the bakery's recipe? Is the skin wrap somewhat skiliar to our moocakes in Asia? Have we had a pistachio mooncake.. me thinks not. Could you feature one?
