Bowl of Savoy is a delicious cream cheese dessert
Bowl of Savoy is a delicious dessert with cream cheese. It has a delicate flavor base due to the cream cheese that progressively reveals candied fruits and raisins soaked in Marsala.
We, here in Piedmont, are used to prepare the bowl of Savoy with a particular type of cheese typical of the Langhe and Monferrato called seiras. I tried to prepare it with a cream cheese like Philadelphia and I found it very similar to the original and just as delicious.
Bowl of Savoy is perfect for Valentine’s Day and as a last minute dessert
The Bowl of Savoy is a perfect dessert for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. It is easy, quick and really a smart dessert. As you can prepare it in a minute, with very popular ingredients and with no needs of baking, it could be prepared the day before (exalting the mixing of the savours) or as a last minute minute delicacy for your guests.
A dessert full of history
Bowl of Savoy is a very traditional dessert in Piedmont. We called it in Piedmontese “Coppa Sabauda” [‘kɔppa sa’bauda]. It was the favorite dessert of Vittorio Emanuele II, the first King of Italy even called Father of the Homeland due to its role in the process of unification of Italy, and of the Bela Rosina its mistress and late wife.
Serve as you prefer
We absolutely love to enjoy the Bowl of Savoy with sour cherries in syrup but it is also perfect served plain or with a veil of icing sugar.
