Pasticceria BusnelliFounded by Teresio Busnelli, this pasticceria in the Arluno suburb practices an ancient method of yeast preparation known as in corda, handed down to Teresio’s son, Andrea. Using a 43-year-old starter dough named Gigi, Andrea makes classic and modern cakes, the latter including the Giallo Milano (Yellow Milan), made with all-yellow ingredients (saffron, candied lemon, ginger) in a nod to both the color of Milan’s old homes and the city’s famous saffron risotto.
