In a city where people are always busy and in a hurry, there is a place where you can find shelter from bad weather or from a bad mood – Zitti’s Cake Shop. Mr Zitti is an outstanding pastry chef and every day he mixes something magical into his cakes. It wasn’t ‘a fancy type of sugar or even a mysterious kind of chocolate or spice from a faraway land’, but a secret ingredient that has the power to leave people lost for words...
Zitti’s Cake Shop explores the extraordinary properties of food as a form of communication because understanding does not always need words.
