Zabaglione is just an Italian and French name for a cream, custard like, that is perfect to use with fresh berries. The basic ingredients are egg yolks, sugar, milk and whatever flavor you want to add.
My version of Zabaglione has a combination of Caribbean flavors and this time, I decided to make it less thick thank traditional and more like a refreshing sauce after a heavy meal to complement the fruits. It was light and tasty, and Linda Garvin, thanks for the cover photo, is just perfect!
