Il dolce - dessert
The photo is from a very delicious dolce that I had in Piacenza (around 45 miles south-east of Milan) last Saturday. They're two beignets filled with cream and with chocolate sauce and almonds on the top. Gnam! as the Italians would say. Dolce can also be used as an adjective to mean sweet. A person can be dolce, or food can be dolce. And as I have a very sweet tooth the few dolce I cook often turn out to be too dolci!
