Crostorta di mele

Crostorta di mele

In bakery class we learnt about Italian pies. A crostorta is a deep dish pie made of 5 layers: shortcrust pastry, jam, sponge cake, creme patisserie, apples and then topped of with simple meringue standing up in peaks.

What stands out in Italian cuisine is the rustic, homemade feel and look of the dish. While French cuisine is all about elaborate playing and delicately prepared dishes, Italian cuisine is warm and hearty and comforting.
