Pistachio Torrone from Dec. Gourmet?
- Carb Lover Dec 9, 2007 01:01 PM
Has anyone tried the pistachio torrone recipe from Dec. Gourmet magazine?
It looks really good, but I'm worried that the recipe may not be well-tested or detailed enough. I've never made torrone or much in the way of homemade candies, so I need a good recipe and you hounds for guidance. The couple of recipe reviews don't boost my confidence in the Gourmet recipe.
Any tips for making torrone? Anyone have a tried-and-true recipe they can share? Any other sweets from the Dec. Gourmet issue that you'd highly recommend? Thanks for your help!
I made a torrone much like this one last year -- it was amazing. My only suggestion would be to find the edible paper, because the stuff is sticky. The only place I've seen it (listed as wafer paper) is on a candy making supply website, one of the two listed in the Gourmet source section.
