If you have never tasted Italian food, then try Cantuccini for your first. Cantuccini is a nutty cookie/biscuit. These sort of biscuits are small, but very tasty to eat. Serve with Vin Santo or coffee. Enjoy!
In a dry frying pan over a medium heat, add the nuts and gently heat, tossing occasionally until browned, about 6 to 8 minutes, taking care not to burn.
