This recipe is from Tuscany.
No sooner is carnival out the way than we have an excuse for another sweet blow-out: San Valentino, or Valentine’s Day. And in a country famed for lovers and romance it’s seen as a big occasion—notwithstanding the fact that the original Saint Valentine was Italian.
It’s also the very beginning of the strawberry season here in Italy with fruit from the milder south appearing in the shops. So inspired by both of these things I created this romantic dessert.
