Florentine by Emiko Davies

Florentine is a book that appeals both to my sense of nostalgia (I lived in Florence, working as a chambermaid, when I was 19) and my appetite. It’s a beautiful, large-format book, with gorgeous pictures of Florence, and snatches of Florentine life, but is far from being a coffee-table book: the recipes take you there just as evocatively. I’ve chosen the Cenci for you here, the crimped short lengths of deep-fried pastry ribbons that are traditionally eaten during Carnival, as I am more than happy to eat them all year round and — unapologetically — do.
