Minestra di frutta e verdure
Dessert Soup with Rhubarb Sorbet
Lactose intolerance is a nuisance when it comes to puddings, but I’ve tried this fruit and vegetable dessert soup with rhubarb sorbet and like it as a delicate alternative to mousse and creams.
During our recent visit to Ristorante il Patio in Pollone near Biella in Piedmont, I had to refrain from the dessert of hazelnut cream and salted crumble due to lactose intolerance. Instead I had a fruit and vegetable dessert soup, which was the only sweet course available without milk. And of course it turned out to be a lot more delicate and interesting than it sounded. I think it is the combination of mildly sweet vegetables with a touch of liquorice and mint that strikes a exquisite balance with the citrus spicy syrup.
