Should you ever find yourself with a couple of hours of free time on holiday on the Amalfi Coast, you simply must visit the Pasticceria Sal de Riso on the seafront in the small town of Minori which is renowned across Italy and whose reputation for producing the finest cakes and pastries spreads across the world.
At the top is just a tiny selection of a vast range of the cakes that they produce freshly on a daily basis. Around the shop floor there are photographs of some of those who have patronised the shop over the decades which includes royalty, heads of state and all manner of famous figures from across the globe; this business even provides desserts to the Vatican and has been a favourite of a number of Popes over the years.
The image underneath is the selection that we made for our lunchtime treat last Tuesday. Mine, at the front is a Ricotta cheese and pear cheesecake and my partner Sharon's is a limoncello flavoured cheesecake... We both thought we'd died and gone to a cakey heaven!
