BRUTTA MA BUONA-Ricotta Cake

Brutti ma buoni means  “Ugly but good”, and this phrase is nor only a cheeky descriptor, but the moniker bestrowed on a beloved Italian cookie. Though recipes vary  by region Piedmont claims one of the most popular iterations — crispy, yet chewy chocolate- hazelnut meringues shaped like a   casually crumpled piece of paper. Here,   we borrowed and adapted the term for  this simple though dazzling ricotta cake. While the intriguingly amorphous dolce might not be so easy on the eyes, it most certainly stirs the palate.
