I always assumed that biscotti would be a difficult bake. I’m not sure why exactly but they look like the type of biscuits you buy in a box at the Italian supermarket that you save for best when your mother in law pops round for a coffee.
When looking for recipe inspiration for my biscotti I read a comment on BBC food that said:
“life is too bloody short to make one’s own biscotti”
Well, we will see about that!
I thought I’d start off simple in terms of flavours and work my way up to interesting flavour combinations (like cherry, chocolate, and pistachio) once I’d mastered the technique.
