When I visited my friend Vitti Gabrielli in Vattaro, near Trento, during the filming of the television series Italian Regional Cookery, she made this delicious pear cake to a traditional local recipe. The whole region is covered in fruit trees, mainly apples, pears and cherries - quite different in appearance from the citrus-fruit-clad fields of the south.
