Dessertful Sundays…. The Italian Way.

The girls and I were invited to Ash and Rita’s house out in Karen for a sunday afternoon session of dessert tasting. Rita’s friends from Sicily, Italy wanted feedback on their range of cakes before officially setting up shop in Nairobi later this year. All the cakes were baked in Rita’s kitchen earlier that day.

What we were not ready for was the feast Rita had prepared for us prior to dessert. The food had a heavy Sicilian influence, a fact all the guests appreciated…

First came the cream fish starter which was lovely…

Then came the hot, spicy olives…

Follwed by the rice balls..

And then meat balls..

And finally meat balls in tomato sauce…

Our main course comprised of four different types of Lasagna. My favorite was the mushroom Lasagna which I still dream of to this day 🙂

The other three lasagnas we had were the eggplant lasagna..

The rice lasagna…

And I can’t seem to recall the name of this one…

As the rest of the guests were enjoying the amazing food, Rita sneaked me into the kitchen where the Sicilian ladies were putting the final touch on dessert…

The final product…

After the divine lunch, the dessert was brought out for our sampling pleasure…

All in all we had a lovely afternoon 🙂
