A Queen In The Kitchen web series is finally back!!!

In today’s episode we’ll celebrate Easter by preparing a mouthwatering Italian dessert : Colombine di Pasqua (puff pastry Easter doves). These “colombine” are super cute, dove shaped pastries filled with Chantilly Cream, a sweet cream made of fresh whipped cream, sugar and vanilla extract.

Another recipe homemade, simple and delicious I have included in my very first cookbook A Queen In The Kitchen, available paperback and Kindle edition on Amazon.
