Only 5 Ingredients!!! I think this is an easy & delicious dessert for Thanksgiving! Turkey & sides take up enough time so dessert should be an easy one! Zabaglione is an Italian dessert traditionally made with whisking together egg yolks, Marsala Wine and sugar. Instead of Marsala Wine I used ginger infused syrup in my recipe where I basically made a sugar syrup and added fresh ginger & let it cook until the syrup thickened and then let it cool. Traditional Zabaglione must be made just before serving. In France it’s called Sabayon. —onetribegourmet

Hi I'm Sara and I love the art of food & travel. I have a blog called One Tribe Gourmet, where I share my passion for global cuisine and my travel adventures around the world. I have always felt that food is the most common denominator that crosses all boundaries and brings people together. The ritual of “Breaking Bread” in every culture is a special bonding experience. Personally I love to experience different cultures through there cuisines! My goal here is to encourage an individual who is interested in learning different global cuisine yet is a bit intimidated by it. I am here to help you, all you have to do is open your heart!!!
