Bake a selection of traditional, authentic Italian biscuits and cookies with Giuseppe. We will be get a batch of Pizzicotti (soft almond and clementine cookies) ready for our elevensies. We will explore the all-Italian tricks for producing the crumbliest and prettiest shortbread with Canestrelli. Then we will practice our piping skills to shape traditional Pasticcini (dainty and beautiful butter pastries). We will bake the quintessentially Tuscan (and irresistible) treats that are Brutti ma buoni (hazelnut meringue cookies) and finally enjoy the mind-blowing experience of dipping Cantucci (almond and pistachio biscuits) in sweet wine, to end the day on an exotic note.

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.
