Diplomatic saffron and lemon cream, land of cocoa and hazelnuts and Berry Compote. A dessert spoon easy but highly effective, especially if it presented in large and choreographic glasses or wide red wine, with all the colors of holidays coming up. The cream diplomatic, that often in Italy is mistakenly called custard, It is made of custard and whipped cream. While the French chantilly cream is simply whipped cream with powdered sugar and vanilla.
The figure of this dessert is the goodies: the crispiness of the land of cocoa and hazelnuts, buttery and crumbly, the smooth creaminess of the cream from the hint of Saffron and lemon, the sweetness and acidity of berries #8217; l & lukewarm, spread on cold cream. Like all DESSERT SPOON is irresistible: impossible not to sink the teaspoon.
All preparations for this dessert you can make them in advance: the land of cocoa you have to store it in an airtight container and in a dry place. The diplomatic alo saffron cream you can store it in refrigerator covered with foil for food in contact and so the berries. Although I suggest you skip the last moment, If you can, because the warm syrup and just did is definitely fresher and tastier.
