Strawberries In Zabaglione @ Fausto’s
Strawberries Romanoff is a classic dessert we don’t see very often these days. Or at least not under that name. Fausto’s makes a variation of the idea that may be the best I’ve encountered. Instead of the alcoholic marinade and whipped cream of classic Romanoff, this starts with a zabaglione–the Marsala-flavored Italian custard. Big fresh berries on top of that, with pecans finishing it off with a little crunch. Spectacular! More restaurants should serve this.
