When designing our trips, wherever that might be, our favorite thing is meeting and partnering with local chefs and discovering their local cuisine. Without the possibility of travel, it was only natural for us to bring international flavors to your kitchens with our Cook-at-Home with Insight video series. You’ll find easy-to-make recipes and videos from our favorite chefs from Spain, England, and Italy.
This week, mother-daughter duo Fiamma and Debora, dine-at-home hosts in Rome, Italy, share an indulgent dessert no guest could ever resist!
