Mousse al Limone


For those of you who haven’t yet visited Borgo di Vagli and for those who had the enjoyment of experiencing Dina’s mouth-watering casalinga cuisine in the Hamlet’s trattoria I’ cche c’é c’é, in each newsletter we continue to highlight one of Dina’s popular recipes for you to try at home, this time we highlight her popular summer desert Mousse al Limone
