Now that the silly season is nearly upon us. I thought I would share with you one of my favourite desserts of all time.
It is considered the mother of all patisseries. Hoards of loyal followers gather outside in anxious uniformity just to taste the legendary Baked Ricotta Cheesecake at Pasticceria Papa.
People across Sydney have cooed, gushed and fawned over this beautifully baked specimen. With it’s freshly baked doughy exterior delicately protecting a luxuriant fluffy ricotta filling. The cake is blanketed with a dusting of cinnamon and icing sugar in patterned formation.
Completely unassuming, to experience one is to come up against food porn in motion. So set yourselves on to quiver mode.
The cannoli is just one of the other desserts that I can’t seem to pass up. It also has the glorious ricotta filling but this time it spills out of the edges of the concrete cannoli casing. So hard to the bite, it’s like cannoli crackling. Chocolate cannoli is just as good but it’s the ricotta, that will you get you every time.
Now with Christmas around the corner, the baked Ricotta Cheesecake orders are sent into overdrive so I suggest you get in early and place your order over the phone – stat.
