having thrown a christmas lunch catering today I couldn’t help but invent a new desert...(true to my rule “at least one of the dishes has to be never tested before”) it seems to have gone fine, so I dare to share. this serves 20 people, so cut amounts in half or forth, depending on the size of your party. I trust it freezes well, so make a big batch and save for next time you get surprise guest or are too lazy to make desert….will serve well as ice cream as well! 1 liter soak
