Two sweet puddings rounded off the meal. First, a chocolate flavoured samosa and to end, a delicious steamed yogurt ‘pannacotta style’ dessert with raspberries and pistachio. A honey sweet 2009 chenin blanc les 4 villages from Loire, France, sent us into a delightfully sugary whirl.
Think of a sformato as a little like a cross between a dense soufflé and a crustless quiche. The term literally means ‘unmoulded’ in Italian, which doesn’t sound half as romantic when you translate it. It can be made with all sorts of vegetables and makes a really impressive vegetarian main course.
