Making sweets was my first foray into cooking independently in the kitchen, and as a teenager I could often be found baking my way through my mother's cookbooks, in particular an American pie cookbook - I have always had a thing for pastry. You will see a bias towards it in Torta della Nonna too, from southern Italian custard and jam bocconotti to ricotta-filled crostata and Florence's little rice pudding pastries, budini di riso.
