Chef Chat: Joe Aiello's Chilled Zabaglione
Besides the scrumptious ingredients, this dessert is an ultra-classy serving, especially if you put it in a pretty wine glass.
And, if you like wine, the dessert tastes especially good when paired with an Italian wine, such as Salavai Amarone.
Here's how to make it:
2 cups of granulated sugar
4 egg yolks
16 ounces Marsala wine
2 pints heavy cream
2 dry pints of strawberries or other favorite berries
Combine sugar, egg yolks and Marsala wine in a bowl. Place over a double broiler and whip rapidly until mixture peaks. Remove from double broiler and let stand. Whip the heavy cream until it peaks. Slowly fold the whipped cream into Marsala custard mixture. When complete, refrigerate for 1 hour. Rim red wine glasses with sugar. Clean and stem strawberries. Place berries in the wine glass, and pour Zabaglione over the top. Garnish with berries and enjoy.
