Ciao. Thanks to everyone that came down for last month's lunch club and apologies that I wasn't there, I hear it went very well without me : ) I was very sad to be stuck at home while you all enjoyed the sun with a vermouth on ice. Anyway, I will be there this time with a starter called Involtino di Peperoni - my mum makes this during the summer months when we have family or friends over. Add some crusty bread and a glass of chilled white wine and you are close to heaven.
The summery tiramisu with strawberries and is also a personal family favourite. For some reason strawberries were always seen as a treat in our house - we were always excited to have them. We use a dash of limoncello in our recipe - it takes it up another level : )
