We will savour the delicious filling of Sicilian cannoli in a cake format with Cuor di Sicilia (ricotta sunken cake), then play with the summery combination of coconut and amarena cherries in torta cocco e amarene. We will bake the deceptively simple showstopper that is torta al mandarino (upside-down clementine cake), and finally indulge in one of the most iconic flavour combinations in Italian baking: tortine cioccolato e pere (chocolate and pear cupcakes). We will also be preparing some ingenious sauces to elevate our simple bakes to elegant, indulgent desserts.

The chef

An engineer and researcher by trade, Giuseppe grew up in a family of passionate bakers, where food was the prime topic of conversation. He inherited from his dad, a professional chef, the love for everything cooked or baked. Winning the Great British Bake Off in 2021 sparked off his ambition to share his family gastronomic knowledge far and wide.

After contributing to the show’s cookbook “A Bake For All Seasons” in 2021, he published his own, “Giuseppe’s Italian Bakes” in 2022, which featured in Waterstones’ The Best Books of 2022: Food & Drink, and was listed in Diana Henry’s Autumn 2022 Best Cookbooks in The Telegraph.

For his second book, “Giuseppe’s Easy Bakes”, published in 2023, he focussed on quick, accessible bakes; all, of course, unapologetically Italian. Both Italian Bakes and Easy Bakes became the fastest selling new release on Amazon.
