Now lets cook cause….

AND I AM WITH A SPECIAL GUEST…MY SISTER! Well, this is it dear ones…my favorite Italian dessert recipe…Zuppa Inglese. Now my Nonna came from Tuscany Italy and they made this treat there. For over a hundred years the English in that region
would request the chefs to make an English Pudding- like dessert…and they turned it into their own..special variation! My mom changed the recipe even more -by making a quick cooked recipe for us kids. She would throw this together in 1/2 hour or less.

But there are more original styles…look it up. But the more back home style in Italy.. in the more oven-baked and the more Italian traditional recipe it is and so…you got to work harder. To make Zuppa Inglese, pan di spagna (sponge cake) or soft biscuits known as savoiardi (ladyfingers) are dipped in Alchermes, a bright red, extremely aromatic Italian herb liqueur and alternated with layers of crema pasticciera which is a thick home made egg custard cooked with a large piece of lemon zest (removed afterwards). Often there is also a layer of crema alla cioccolata made by dissolving dark chocolate in a plain crema pasticciera. Rarely topped with cream, meringue or almonds in Italy.

Come and enjoy my special guest today..My sister! Come and enjoy her company as we colloborate in making this extremely “delicioso ” Zuppa Inglese.” Happy Eating!
