Balsamic Sabayon with Strawberries

October 6, 2015

Author Notes: This simple sabayon takes on unexpected elegance with the addition of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale, a traditional pairing with strawberries. For a perfect pairing, sip on a Nebbiolo or Cabernet Sauvignon with it … which are the wines we use to make our Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale.Ryan MacDonnell
