S. De Riso, “Dolci in famiglia”,
ed. Rizzoli 2009, p.13
Since 1908 the De Riso family run a tobacco bar in the main square of Minori; during the summer they prepared delicious lemon granite and ice-cream, becoming famous all over the Amalfi Coast..
Salvatore was born in 1966 and after studying as a chef and working in the kitchens of the best hotels of the Amalfi Coast, in 1989 discovered his big passion for pastry. He opened the “Pasticceria De Riso” on Minori seafront and a workshop in Tramonti. In a few years his pastry shop became one of the most renowned both locally and nationally.
Many people arrive in Minori to buy Salvatore’s specialties, strictly related to traditions, scents and colors of the Amalfi Coast. The secret of his success is just one: his deep passion for high quality products, carefully selected from the finest producers.
He attended specialization courses with important pastry chefs and in 1994 was the first pastry chef from the Soputher Intaly to be admitted to the prestigious Accademia dei Maestri Pasticceri Italiani, whose founder Iginio Massari, says of him:
"“For De Riso, working is an act of competence and intelligence, a source of perfection and joy. Thus he becomes a symbol, a guide for who, as he did, have the strength to obey their own inner law when they know they are right”.
