A little history of this fantastic dessert.
It is said that this was created in the 17th century as a result of a mistake by the chef of the Duke Carlo Emanuele the 1st of Savoy. He accidently poured some foritfied wine into an egg custard. It soon became the pudding served by the Piedmontese artistocracy.
