Italian Lemon Ricotta Almond Tart Recipe

 


Lemon Ricotta Almond Torta





RECIPE

Ingredients :

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened (113 grams)
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup full-fat ricotta
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Zest from 1 organic lemon
  • 3 eggs, room temperature, separated
  • 3 tablespoons limoncello
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Preparation


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a 9-inch springform pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until incorporated. Mix in the ricotta, vanilla and lemon zest.
  3. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then add the egg yolks, one at a time, continuing to beat until very light and creamy. Add in the limoncello, almond flour and baking powder and beat to combine.
  4. In a separate clean chilled bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the cake mixture. (Don’t worry if white streaks remain – they will disappear once in the oven.)
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan. Smooth the top with a spatula or spoon. Sprinkle with the sliced almonds. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until firm yet slightly springy to the touch.
  6. Allow to cool completely. (It will fall slightly.) Dust with the powdered sugar and serve!

Joe Gallo Whacked at Umbertos – NYC

.

68870-screen2bshot2b2016-12-012bat2b2-00-012bpm

UMBERTO’S CLAM HOUSE



MULBERRY STREET , LITTLE ITALY 



NEW YORK , NY

 

The flamboyant criminal career of Joey Gallo was ended early yesterday by a lone gunman who surprised the gregarious gangster in a downtown restaurant where he was continuing the celebration of his 43d birthday.
Gallo was struck only twice, but police estimated that about 20 shots, most of them fired by Gallo aides, were exchanged. Also wounded was Gallo bodyguard Peter (Pete the Greek) Diapioulas, 40. Police arrested him for possession of .32 caliber revolver.
The dramatic death of the Brooklyn mob boss – whose flair for violence earned him the nickname Crazy Joe – sent police to gangster haunts throughout the city in an attempt to head off a possible all-out mob war.
With Gallo in Umberto’s clam bar, 129 Mulberry St., when he was shot was his bride of three weeks, Sina, and her daughter, Lisa, 10. Also in the party, which had gone to the Little Italy restaurant after attending comedian Don Rickles’ opening night performance at the Copacabana, was the hood’s sister, Mrs. Ella Fiorella, and a friend, Edith Russo.

Diapioulas also sat at the table, which was on the right side and in the rear of the small restaurant. Police say that one and possibly two other Gallo men were seated on stools in the front of the restaurant.

ENTERED TROUGH SIDE DOOR

Gallo had arrived at Umberto’s shortly after 5 a.m. and, according to witnesses, was loud and happy. The party ordered house specialties such as Scungilli, Calamari and Mussels. Wine was brought to the table.

 

A Plate of MUSSELLS CLAMS SCUNGILLI & CALAMARI
 
Besides the Gallo party, there were nine other customers in the restaurant, which opened three weeks ago. The gunman entered through a side door and went directly to behind Gallo’s table.
The man, described as about 5-foot-8, stocky, about 40 years old and with receding dark hair, fired twice, striking Gallo in the left shoulder and, as the hood fell over, in the left buttock. Diapioulas drove for cover but was also hit in the buttock.
The killer calmly turned and walked out into Mulberry St. to a waiting car. Diapioulas apparently fired three times at the gunman. Other Gallo hoods ran to the street and began blasting at the car as it sped away.
Gallo managed to stagger toward the front door. He stumbled and then fell, smashing the plate glass. Gallo then plunged through the entrance and staggered 15 feet more before collapsing in the middle of the intersection of Hester and Mulberry Streets.
Patrolman Felice Agosta of the Elizabeth St. station, summoned to the scene, found the gang leader, Diapioulas at his side, lying on the street. The cop took both to Beekman-Downtown Hospital, where Gallo was pronounced dead.
Police estimate that as many as four guns, including the still missing murder weapon, were used in the shootout. Only Pete the Greek’s weapon was recovered, police said. Several buildings, including Graziano’s funeral home, directly opposite Umberto’s side entrance, bear pock-marked evidence of being struck by slugs.
Although Gallo had recently said he was retired from all criminal activity and was writing a book, police sources said this was not true, that in fact the mobster had built up a considerable organization since his parole from prison last June.
CALAMARI
or as da Boys would say,  “Gal-a-Mar
 
Gallo, who had spent nine years in Attica prison after being convicted for an attempted extortion, from a Little Italy restaurant owner, quickly became engaged in extortion, shakedowns and shylocking on his parole, according to ranking police officer.
The swaggering tough guy reportedly attempted also to move in on several night clubs that were controlled by other mob factions, and this activity may have led to the rubout.
Gallo’s death was not mourned in Little Italy. Most of the shopkeepers and people in the neighborhood refused comment. Underworld figures simply shrugged and said, “It had to happen.”
Gallo first came into underworld prominence in the early ’60’s when he and brothers, Larry and Albert (Kid Blast), broke away from the Joseph Profaci “family” and engaged in a gang war that left 14 dead and four other hoods missing.
Profaci died of cancer in 1962 and Joseph Colombo reportedly took over the family and patched up the grievances with the Gallo gang. Larry Gallo also died of cancer, in the mid ’60’s.

BURT YOUNG’S SUNDAY SAUCE GRAVY

RECIPE :

INGREDIENTS :

1 pound Pork Neck, removed from bone and cut into 1″ chunks

8 pieces Italian Sweet Sausages

12 Pork Spare Ribs

1/4 cup Italian Olive Oil

1 pinch Pepperoncino (Red Pepper Flakes)

1 medium Onion, peeled and dice fine

1 pound Pork Neck, removed from bone and cut into 1″ chunks

Italian Sweet Sausages

12 Pork Spare Ribs

6 Chicken Thighs

2 – 28 ounce can of San Marzano Whole Tomatoes (drained in strainer, reserving liquid.

2 – 28 ounce cans of Italian Tomato Passata

half can of Tomato Paste

16 fresh Basil leaves, washed and torn into pieces with your fingers (don’t use a knife)

2 Bay Leaves

Place the olive oil in a large pot and turn heat on to medium. Add the pork ribs and half the pork neck and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove and set aside. 

Brown remaining pork neck and the Chicken Thighs. When finished browning set aside with the ribs. Add the Sausage and brown over low medium heat until slightly browned (about 8 minutes). Remove sausages from pot, and let rest with the ribs.

Add the chopped onion to the pot and cook on low heat for 4 minutes. Add 4 cloves of chopped garlic and let cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to let the garlic burn.

Chop the whole San Marzano tomatoes and add to pot with onions. Cook on high heat for 3 minutes. Add the Tomato Passata and cook on high heat for 4 minutes.

Add the reserved juices from the San Marzano Tomatoes, the basil and Bay Leaves to the pot. Add 1 teaspoon each of Salt & Black Pepper and 1 cup of water and stir.

Add all the browned meats and cook on low heat for 90 minutes as you stir this with a wooden spoon ever now and then to keep the sauce from sticking or burning.

After all the meats are in the pot with the browned meats, begin to make your meatballs.

For MEATBALLS :

Mix the following ingredients in a large glass bowl. Form into 2″ round Meatballs and fry until lightly browned in vegetable oil.

2 pound fresh Ground Beef, 1/4 cup bread crumbs and 1/4 cup Milk

1/4 cup fresh Italian Parsley, washed, dried and chopped

1/4 teaspoon each of Salt & Black Pepper .. 2 cloves Garlic, minced fine

2 large Eggs, cracked and beaten with a fork

After the sauce (Gravy) has been simmering for 90 minutes, add the brown Meatballs to the pot with the fresh Basil Leaves, and let simmer on low hear for 35 minutes. Turn heat off and let the Sauce sit for 15 minutes. 

To serve your Sunday Sauce, cook some short maccheroni according to directions on package. Burt likes to use Rigatoni.

Once the maccerhoni (pasta) is cooked, drain the pasta, reserving a little of the pasta water. Add the Riagatoni (pasta) back to the pot it cooked in. Add some of the Tomato Sauce to the pasta and mix. Add a little sprinkle of Olive Oil and a little bit of the reserved pasta water.

Place some of the sauce Maccheroni on each persons plate, add a little more tomato sauce over the pasta, and place 1 or 2 Meatballs, one Pork Rib, and 1 Sausage on each persons plate. Serve , and place some grayed Parmigiano Cheese in the middle of the table

Enjoy!
