A golden shortcrust pastry filled with white chocolate mousse and topped with a dense raspberry sauce: is the last dessert signed Simona Quirini, chef at Canto del Maggio in Terranuova Bracciolini (Arezzo).
Chef Simona loves to create fancy gluten free desserts for St. Valentines day (did you remember her Chocolate love cake?). Creamy inside, crumbly on the outside... you will remain amazed by the match: white chocolate and raspberry sauce. Enjoy it!
