Zuppa Inglese di Panettone

Zuppa Inglese appeared in the towns of Bologna, Forlì, Ferrara and Reggio Emilia, all in the Emilia-Romagna region, in the late 1800s.


Its origins are uncertain and one theory states that it originated in the 1500s kitchens of the Dukes of Este, the rulers of Ferrara who had frequent contact with England, when they asked their cooks to try to recreate the sumptuous English Trifle they had enjoyed at the Elizabethan court.


To make Zuppa Inglese di Panettone you need the following, Panettone (Milano's traditional Christmas bread) dipped in Alchermes, a bright red, extremely aromatic Italian herb liqueur and alternated with layers of crema pasticciera which is a thick homemade egg custard.
