Giada’s Zeppole: Review

I was watching The Chew today, a new show I’ve become obsessed with, and Mario Batali made Zeppole. With it being National Dessert Day (and because they looked so good on the TV,) I decided that I needed to make them for dessert after supper tonight. I quickly went to The Chew’s website and they only had it in video format (I prefer to read rather than listen) and Mario’s delicious dessert called for polenta – an ingredient I was short of. So I looked for another recipe and came across one by one of my favourite Italian chefs, Giada DeLaurentiis.

I did change just a few things about this recipe. I left out the vanilla bean (I don’t think I’ve ever owned fresh vanilla bean,) and just tossed the Italian doughnuts (the other name these sweet snacks go by) in the cinnamon and sugar when I was finished. I also took the espresso/chocolate sauce Mario made to accompany his on today’s show and switched it up with straight chocolate and cream. Better to give the kiddies just sugar, not sugar and caffeine.

Two of the greatest Italian chefs coming together (even if they don’t know it,) to make one fabulous Italian dessert? How could this possibly be a bad thing?
