Happy Christmas: on La Cucina Italiana newsstands, December 2021 – Italian Cuisine

Happy Christmas: on La Cucina Italiana newsstands, December 2021


The number of December from The Italian kitchen it has always been a collector's number. 2021 is no exception: the splendid dessert you see on the cover was designed and created by the chefs World Pastry Champions just for us, for you. From today on newsstands.

The Editorial by the Director, Maddalena Fossati Dondero

“I still remember it, even though it's been a long time. Much. The first time I saw the games, upon waking up, on Christmas morning. They weren't wrapped, they were instead arranged on the carpet in my bedroom, with the Cicciobello and the soft toys seated, the constructions ready to be invented, the markers almost already on the sheet. Today I imagine my parents arrange them in silence so as not to make noise, move in the semi-darkness so as not to wake up and pretend to drink that milk and eat those cookies that are always left for those who come to dispense so much joy. Today we shoot videos of everything, but those moments are indelibly recorded in my heart and will stay there. I like the eyes of children at Christmas and that's why you can find on this page the photos of the editorial staff of La Cucina Italiana, from when we were little, December 25 at home and during kindergarten parties. These photos are from the sixties, seventies, eighties, which were printed by the photographer and cannot be enlarged with the thumb and forefinger as we do on the phone screen, nor can they be sent by whatsapp. We looked for them in the drawers (it took me two hours to rummage through family documents), put them in an envelope and brought them as treasures to the editorial office. We are very or not very recognizable, we all make a great tenderness because at Christmas the children become even sweeter than the icing sugar that we pour rain on the pandoro. Here, my wish for this year is to rediscover that look of when you were a child. I like to think of a Christmas that brings generosity and good thoughts, that becomes a day of celebration of the many pleasant things in life where food represents an extraordinary moment of aggregation and genuine love. And where there is room, plenty of room for kindness. Italian Cuisine is here with us, it accompanies us year after year, flavor after flavor, and in this issue there are many tasty ideas starting from the cover, the Italian Christmas cake. We created it with ingredients from many parts of the peninsula in our kitchen together with the team that won the pastry world cup, waving the tricolor very high once again. A lot of sweetness to make these days as memorable as the awakening of a child in front of his games. Merry Christmas friends and friends, let the celebrations begin. "

p.s. our photos as children are precious and we prefer to leave them on paper, see you at newsstands!
