A risotto ' sweet ', made with rice from risotto to excellence, the Carnaroli, cooked with milk and cream and garnished by sugar-preserved cherries mixed with alchermes. A delicate dessert that your imagination and the seasonality of fruit can change-tastic: in the spring with a strawberry coulis or apricots, in winter with apples or pears with cinnamon or even with a simple dollop of excellent jam… If you like creamy desserts and puddings, take a look at our tiramisu, the Strawberry cream and soft cheese, at milk flan with salted caramel, the zuppa inglese, the Lemon cream with orange jelly and to the ‘cuccìa‘ Palermo.
