“Zabaglione is a classic Italian dessert made with only 3 ingredients. You can enjoy it on its own or pair it with all kinds of fruits. For Valentine’s Day, we suggest decorating it with a velvety sour cherry sauce and pink rose petals. In the summer, it tastes especially good with grilled peaches.”
