Unusual tempting delicacies…

Cake, ice cream or coffe?
It might happen that you’ll get all of them if you attend a proper Italian wedding! We are quite famous for neverending meals and I have to admit sometime they are really too long for Italians too.
I think the moment I prefer is the dessert time, especially if there are some unusual delicacies to try. So when I saw these photos I thought: what about an original dessert instead of the traditional cake?
The caffe’ “Al bicerin” (wich letteraly means little glass) in Torino is a historical and traditional caffe’ where you can find all sorts of desserts and very good coffe too.
This is a zabaione sorbet, a mixture of egg yolks, sugar and wine beaten over a gen – the wine can vary from marsala to barolo. It’s possible to add some wipped cream and serve it with some biscuits.

The hot chocolate can also be a nice choice for a winter wedding. It must be made using the finest cocoa following a long process of preparation. Recommended with a gentle sprinkle of fresh wipped cream!

Last one is another winter choice – this is a traditional treat in the Torino area: hot expresso coffe’, chocolate and milk cream all served in a tall flute!
