Valentine’s Day Video Recipe
Hazelnut Cake with
Brachetto d'Acqui Zabaione



Are you looking for a delicious recipe for Valentine’s Day or for any sweet moment together with your other half? What if we tell you that not only do we have the recipe, but also the right wine pairing?

Duchessa Lia exclusively offers to the readers of its blog a recipe by Sara Chiriotti, chef at the famous restaurant «I Caffi» in Acqui Terme, which boasts a red Michelin star. Red like the ruby colour of the Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG, the undisputed star of this recipe.

Watch the video and discover with Sara Chiriotti how to prepare, step by step, the typical Piedmont hazelnut cake, to which an original touch is added.

The zabaione that goes with the cake, in fact, has been prepared by adding, to the classic base of eggs and sugar, a glass of Brachetto d'Acqui DOCG Duchessa Lia, whose delicate and enveloping scents of fresh fruit perfectly match the toasted aroma of hazelnuts.

And finally, don’t forget to pair the cake with the same wine used for the zabaione, the Brachetto DOCG Duchessa Lia: vinified with Brachetto grapes exclusively from the hills of Acqui, naturally sweet and harmonious. Serve it cold, at 8-10 degrees, possibly in a nice glass with a wide bottom, in order to inebriate all the guests with its wonderful bouquet.

Cheers, and Happy Valentine’s Day from Duchessa Lia!
