17. Caprese cake
In 1920, in an artisan workshop on the island of Capri, a chef named Carmine di Fiore involuntarily “created” the greedy masterpiece of Neapolitan confectionery art: the Caprese cake. It is said that the cook was alone in his small culinary “kingdom”, surrounded by his tools, ingredients and was engaged with extreme care in the preparation of an almond cake. Perhaps for the hurry to finish, perhaps for another reason, he made a mistake that would surely have cost him dearly his reputation as a renowned man who forgot to add the amount of flour necessary to complete the dough of the cake. He baked it without realizing it and at the end of cooking, with great amazement, the cake turned out to be a real delicacy- It was soft in the center and crunchy on the outside. Unexpected recipe, made by chance. It had paid off! And what fruits!
