  1. Another fun episode! Just a quick note to say, though, that babà *can* be found in North America, but you need to go to cities with large Italian-American populations. I remember them well from my childhood—they appeared regularly on our Sunday dinner table, along with sfogliatelle, cannoli and other pastries, purchased from the local pastry shop in the Italian neighborhood in New York where my grandparents lived. From a quick Google search, I see that those pastry shops (like DeLillo's on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx) still sell them.
