Piedmont Recipes - Zabajone
Before I get onto this zabajone recipe I had to say that I've just finished the most amazing lunch. An incredible Melanzane alla Parmigiana (Aubergine with Parmessan cooked in the oven) recipe that a good friend of mine from beautiful Tuscany shared with me! You really must try it and follow it up with this recipe - they go together fabulously.
Onto the Zaba recipe...

lemon and half a vanilla stick,
1) Mix ten egg yolks in with two dessert spoons of castor sugar, and
three glasses of Marsala wine, add in half a stick of vanilla, the peel

2) Whip this up lightly over a low heat until it is nearly
boiling and very slightly frothy; then remove it from the stove, remove
the cinnamon, vanilla, and lemon peel, and whip up all the remaining
ingredients for two minutes.
3) Add a tablespoonful of Maraschino and one of rum and stir
until all is well mixed in, pour it into a silver souffle dish, and put it on ice.
Serve with sponge cakes or iced wafers.
