Colomba di Pasqua


A “colomba di Pasqua” (Easter dove) is much like the Italian sweet bread panettone, which is served at Christmas. This bread is shaped like a dove to represent peace or the resurrection. Check with your local baker to see if they make this holiday dessert!

Truc (Tip): It is commonly served with “crema di mascarpone” or a whipped concoction of mascarpone cheese, a few egg yolks, a little liqueur (like amaretto or orange) or rum and sugar to taste, and a bit of heavy cream to thin it.
