Creamy zabaglione is an Italian custard made from just four ingredients: egg yolks, sugar, heavy cream and marsala wine. Drizzled over fresh cut strawberries and blackberries, your guests will be delighted by the combination of tart berries, sweet cream and marsala wine. The best part? You can prepare it ahead of time and keep it chilled until you’re ready to serve.
