Hi! I am Amy Riolo. Today, I’m working in the kitchen at Sur La Table in Arlington, Virginia and we’re going to be making Italian cookies. We’re going to make three different kinds of cookies. One of them is a pistachio, dried cherry, and white chocolate biscotti. We’re also going to be making Calabrian sesame cookies and we are going to be making Pizzelle. We will be going over the ingredients in each of the different videos and we’ll be using pretty much standard kitchen equipment, but there are a few pieces which you may not have that we’ll be using. The first one is a KitchenAid standing mixer. If you don't have a KitchenAid, you don't need it you can just use a regular bowl or a hand mixer, or a spoon at home. And then to make the Pizzelle’s, we’ll need a Pizzelle baker and you can get them. They come in different varieties. This is one that Sur La Table has and this is another variety. And inside of them they have different designs. So this is what you will need if you’re making the Pizzelle’s. You can't do it kind of without the Pizzelle baker. And then we will have a cookie sheet that's lined with a Silpat. If you don't have a silpat you can use parchment paper but it's nice to line them because then you can get a better finish on the bottom of the cookie. Safety is always important and when you’re working in the kitchen especially if there are children around, it's important to be careful and watch them around hot temperatures. We’re working with the oven today and also with the Pizzelle bakers that have their cords. The ovens do get very hot and we want to make sure that the cords are out of the reach of children so that they aren't able to burn themselves. Before we begin, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m cookbook author, cooking instructor, and restaurant and culinary consultant. I specialize in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine and the recipes which we’re going to be making today are some of the recipes from my family that we have been enjoying for many years. I hope that you also enjoy them.
