A fig-and-nut-filled pastry that we enjoyed at a party at the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles reminded us that Tu Bishvat is coming soon.

The pastry was baked by Giorgio Lo Verde of Il Fornaio restaurant in Coronado, California, who had just won an Ospitalità Italiana award, given by the Italian government to restaurants in countries around the world – including Israel – for their role as “ambassadors of authentic Italian quality.”
