Sfogliatelle and a guest post

26 April 2012

A while ago I was asked to do a guest post on Shez’s blog, One Bite More. Seeking inspiration for what to make for the guest post was possibly one of the hardest things I did for this post. Being slightly devastated that I couldn’t go to a Cancer Research conference in Barcelona later this year, I started to think of other possible holiday destinations I can go to. This lead me to think about my first ever overseas holiday to Europe and how much I was looking forward to visiting Venice.

It was here where I came across sfogliatelle; an Italian pastry shaped like a cone and has layers and layers of flaky pastry with a sweet ricotta mixture inside it. It has always been on my mind to create this wonderful dessert at home and I did.

So head on over to her blog to check out my post to read a bit about my Venice holiday and how to make sfogliatelle at home. Click here for a printable recipe.

    Look at all of those beautiful layers! :O

  2. Sara (Belly Rumbles)

    Phuoc they are gorgeous!! You rocked that recipe 🙂

  3. Maria @Epicuriously

    You are a genius! I love this pastry and will helplessly gravitate towards them – I can’t believe you made it! Thank you for the recipe, I’m going to try and make it for Mother’s Day, you’ve secured what dessert I’m making =)

  4. Tina @ bitemeshowme

    Congrats on the guest post! That’s awesome – and hello sfogliatelle.. it sounds so sexy and you made it look even sexier 😉

  5. SarahKate (Mi Casa-Su Casa)

    Loved this post on both blogs! I’m so impressed that you tackled all those layers! I’m often scared to death of pastry, so your recipe is seriously brilliant.

    Lorraine & Sara: Thanks!

    Maria: I do hope you get around to making them, they are truly a labour of love but definitely worth it, and what better way to spoil mum (and yourself). Happy baking! 🙂

    Tina: Awww thanks! 🙂

    SarahKate: Thank you! Pastry isn’t so bad to make, it’s just a matter of knowing the limits of working with it (normally it’s best to underwork the dough) and you’ll be fine. Practice makes perfect, don’t give up!

    That pastry looks like a challenge! Can’t wait to see what you will be able to create in a years time!

    Thanks so much again for the post Phuoc! I have serious thin-pastry-phobia so was ridiculously impressed at your home made pastry skills. They look delicious.

  9. Phuoc

    Food is our religion: Trust me, it’s not so bad, all you need it a little practice 🙂

    Shez: Awww thanks!

    Fab job 🙂 they’re so pretty!!

  11. Ai-Ling@blueapocalypse

    I’ve only ever made a basic shortcrust pastry, anything beyond that seems like too much work. Very impressed by your Sfogliatelle!

  12. Martyna @ WholesomeCook

    Hey Phuoc, I’ll be heading over to check out the recipe shortly – loving baking at the moment, but a quick question… where did you get the “lacy” black plate from? Is it by Wonki Ware? I got some in HK but was wondering whether they sell them in Syd! Thanks, and enjoy Italy!

    wow that sfogliatelle looks real nifty 🙂 not sure if I ever attempted that mine would end up looking like that!

  14. Phuoc

    Nic: Thanks!

    Ai-Ling: They are truly a labour of love but they’re oh-so-worth it!

    Martyna: I got mine from Hong Kong a while back, can’t remember the name of the shop though :S

    Vivian: Thanks 🙂

    I’m terrible at making pastry but this is so good I can’t resist! Great job you did though!

    Mary: Thanks
