HOW TO MAKE
Chocolate and almonds torte (Gluten-free)
In 1920, on the island of Capri, a chef named Carmine di Fiore involuntarily "created" the greedy masterpiece of Neapolitan pastry art: la Torta Caprese. It is said that the cook was alone in his small culinary "kingdom", surrounded by tools, ingredients and was busy with extreme care in the preparation of a torte for three criminals of Al Capone's who came to Capri. Everything was going well but perhaps out of distraction, perhaps out of a hurry to finish, he made a mistake that would have cost him dearly his reputation as a renowned chef. He forgot to add the amount of flour needed to complete the torte dough. He baked it without realizing it and at the end of cooking, with great amazement, the cake turned out to be a real delicacy: soft in the center and crunchy outside. The three Americans were 100% satisfied, even asking for the recipe. The chef continued to prepare the cake even later and liked it very much, it was a great success.
