Piedmontese chocolate pudding with vanilla quince

November 30th, 2017 | sweets

A beautiful and strong coffee, anyone? Then, after a substantial meal, this specialty from the Piedmont is the right! In Piedmont, this pudding is called also Bonèt, because its form probably reminds something to a hat or a chef’s hat. Another story around the Bonèt comes from the Langhe. It states that one puts so to speak “a hat” – a crown – on dinner with this dessert. Anyhow, it tastes excellently and even better when prepared the day before. Incredibly handy when you expect guests.

 

PS: The Vanilla Quinces are a perfect match!

Wanderlust to Scandinavia

If there are Scandinavian cinnamon buns at home, then I know our daughter is going on vacation to the far north of Europe, or she has just returned. Yesterday it was time again: incredibly seductive scent of cinnamon and cardamom moved through the house. And in fact: in two weeks she’ll start. Sweden, Norway, Finland.
