A'putia Sicilian Pastry & Cafe
Cannoli: crisp, cookie-like tubes stuffed with generous heaps of sheep ricotta cream. Cassata: ricotta-filled, liqueur-laced sponge cake embraced by a blanket of marzipan. Both desserts originated in Sicily—and so does chef Giacomo d'Alessandro. His pursuit of the perfect cannoli began when he couldn't find a cannoli in New York that measured up to the ones he knew from home. So he decided to make his own and now ships pastry ingredients in to his bakery from the Sicilian village of Agrigento. Thanks to his skills and those ingredients, his cafe diners now get to experience authentic flavors and textures from Sicily on the streets of New York City.
