Julia Child’s Gateau Reine de Saba Recipe a la Levana!

Posted on 14th of June, 2012 by Lévana

Gateau-Reine-De-Saba

I got my inspiration directly from Julia. The name is not presumptuous for this fabulous and ethereal dessert. It is almost flourless, but I make it completely so, and enjoy it on Passover too. Its short and dazzling ingredient list read like that of a giant chocolate truffle. Chocolate and...

Mock Zuppa Inglese Recipe

Posted on 2nd of May, 2012 by Lévana

ZUPPA-ENGLESE1

Zuppa Inglese is not a soup at all, but an affectionate take on what the Italians see as a favorite British dessert, closely related to trifle.  As always with desserts known as containing too many eggs and too much cream, I cheat and tinker endlessly, as I did here, using...

Posted on 8th of March, 2012 by Lévana

PB-chocolate-bars1

I created these delicious (and gluten-free to boot) treats to celebrate the discovery that my granddaughter Musia was no longer allergic to peanut butter, and since she has a sort of chocolate obsession, this was the ultimate gift. To get an even shorter cut into her heart, I threw in...
