  • About

At her Pasticceria del Convento in Erice, a nearly mile-high medieval town in northwestern Sicily, Maria Grammatico makes a version of Paste Nuove filled with heady, rum-soaked candied orange peel. The flavor (and strength) of the rum opposes the intense sweetness of the dough and filling for a very successful liquor-imbued confection.
