Sambuca Kisses – Unique, Gentle & Crunchy – “Italian Cook” Nigellissima

Sambuca Kisses – Unique, Gentle & Crunchy – “Italian Cook” Nigellissima –

These “Kisses” are truly wonderful. Light and airy. They are referred to as Kisses because fo the slightest sweet caress they leave in the mouth. Almost like eating a delicate anise flavored breath of air. They puff up gloriously and are almost relaxing to make.

The recipe is by Nigella Lucy Lawson. Born on the 6th of January 1960 is an English journalist, broadcaster, television personality, gourmet, and food writer. We kiddingly refer to as “Italian Cook” Nigellissima because she makes some very interesting Italian related dishes or specialties time and again.

In 1999, she hosted her own cooking show series, Nigella Bites, accompanied by her best-selling cook book. Nigella Bites won a Guild of Food Writers Award in that year.

She hosted the Food Network’s Nigella Feasts in the United States in 2006, followed by a three-part BBC Two series, Nigella’s Christmas Kitchen, in the UK, which led to the commissioning of Nigella Express on BBC Two in 2007. Her own cookware range, Living Kitchen, has a value of 7 million pounds, and she has sold more than 3 million cookery books worldwide to date.

Sambuca is an Italian anise-flavoured, usually colourless, liqueur. Its most common variety is often referred to as white sambuca to differentiate it from other varieties.

Sambuca is flavoured with essential oils obtained from anise, star anise, liquorice and other spices. It also contains elderflowers. The oils are added to pure alcohol, a concentrated solution of sugar, and other flavouring. It is commonly bottled at 42% alcohol by volume.

Sambuca was first used as the name of another elderberry liquor that was created in Civitavecchia about 130 years ago.

The first commercial version of such a drink started at the end of 1800 in Civitavecchia, where Luigi Manzi sold Sambuca Manzi.
