COURTYARD COOLERS

The late Jennifer Paterson's "Suffolk Lemon Pudding" is a dessert I have often made here and my Sicilian friends seem to like it, especially when I explain that it's a sort of semifreddo. My friend Irma is fascinated by this dish and I was flattered when she rang me a few weeks ago to ask for the recipe as she wanted to serve it at a party she was planning.  I hadn't imagined she would make four of them but she did!  You can see them in the bottom picture among the other cool and tempting dolci on the table:





The company of friends, a song from Irma's talented daughter and "Suffolk Lemon Pudding" in a moonlit Sicilian courtyard - what better way could there be to spend a summer evening?

Brava - i made Baked Alaska for the first time the other day - not bad but rather a heart-stopping moment hoping the ice cream didn't melt while the meringue was cooking.

It's what I call a "never-fail" recipe, Patricia!

Italians love their food, that's for sure...and they love their desserts.

I cooked in an establishment back in the late Nineties in a town in North Queensland, the population of which is mainly Italian/Italian heritage. And boy, oh, boy...did they love their food; and no doubt, still do!

And what I love is they eat with gusto...they really enjoy the art of eating.

Yes, they certainly do, Lee and it isn't long before any conversation here turns to the subject of food!
