Like a fruit bat hunting for a mango tree, my super senses spotted the home made torte sitting on the bar of the restaurant.

‘It’s homemade Pinolate’, the waitress said. Pinolate is a light Siena cake with pine nuts and a ribbon of custard cream through the middle. Not overly sweet, the cake has now shot to the top of my perfect dessert list.

To find, visit Osteria sella Chiacchera, Siena

  1. Yummmm. I was in Siena in 1985/6. Sigh. Remember the wine tasting Osteria just outside the beautiful square in a modern building.

  2. Aloha Jenny!

    I’m back home from Honolulu! Are you still living the life of dolce a vita? or are you back in the land of lamingtons and fried eggs?
