Gnocchi and Zabaglione at Biba


I have found a cure for the Mondays. Last night, a couple of friends and I went for a spontaneous trip to Biba for a celebration dinner, and I almost forgot it was just the start to another week. Amazing desserts, dinners and great service still exist on Mondays. This was the second time I’ve had dinner at Biba so I already knew to expect something spectacular.

This time, I tried the Gnocchi del Giorno and it was even better than it sounds. These perfect little gnocchi bites were doused in a rich tomato and white wine sauce and were just wonderful. With just enough room for dessert, I decided to step away from my chocolate obsession and try something entirely new—Zabaglione con Frutti di Bosco. This classic dessert is likely to become a new favorite. Fresh berries are topped with the Zabaglione sauce made with egg yolks, sugar and sweet wine—it adds the perfect creamy sweetness to summer fruit. With the scorching heat we’ve been enduring these past couple days – this dessert was the ultimate refresher. After scraping every spoonful out of my glass, I could only wonder how I’d been missing out on this all these years!
