Chocolate Shortbread Tart with Hangover Baked Cream

With Wilden. herbals and Marcello Rapisardi

Marcello and Francesca opened their pastry shop, taking over an old shop window in the neighborhood in Piazzale Bacone in Milan. Entering their shop you can breathe an air of novelty, typical of true dreamers. At Marcello (the master pastry chef) and Francesca (the pastry chef) you can breathe the research, the classic and the love of sweets. It’s like giving you a long hug.

With Wilden herbal. herbals teas, Marcello wanted to explore the multifaceted universe of herbs and this is one of his recipes.
