This is a traditional cake of Trieste, in the far north-east of Italy, which for centuries has been one of the most important Adriatic ports. Trieste is famous for its cafés and patisseries, which celebrate the culinary talents and ingredients of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This spiral-shaped bread is filled with nuts and candied fruit, scented with grappa and enriched with butter, eggs and sugar. It’s wonderful with coffee or hot chocolate, or at the end of a meal with dessert wine.
