In three months time, I look forward to sampling many different and varied gelati, to sipping an espresso as I watch the Roman people go by and most of all, I look forward to visiting as many pasticcerie and discovering the sweet tastes of Rome. Yes, in three months time I leave for a visit to Italy. For me, it will be a time of rediscovering my roots, a time to embrace aunts, uncles and cousins, and a time to introduce my children to their heritage. And while pasticcerie displays are luscious and elaborate it is the home sweets that are made with love and tradition that tug at the heart strings.
