A traditional Italian dessert called Zabajone (written Zabaglione in most of Italy outside of Piedmont) is a delicious treat for the whole family. Well, maybe not the whole family, as it is full of wine; perhaps make it when you have no children for dinner. Zabajone has been enjoyed for centuries. It is a sweet, creamy custard-like dessert that is flavored with wine and served with sponge fingers and fruit. A delicious dessert, perfect for special occasions, but it's also easy enough to make for a cozy night in.
This recipe is one of our favorites, and we always tend to associate it with some of the most magical and romantic evenings in our lives. I hope it creates the same magic for you.
