  • About

The Italians use the term zuppa inglese (English soup) for a dessert made with custard and sponge finger biscuits (known to the English as trifle). The French use the term crème anglaise for what the English call custard. In Turkey, the dish called supangle (pronounced ‘soup anglais‘) is made with slices of sponge and chocolate custard. Therefore I feel entitled to torture the language further by calling my mixture of chocolate custard and coffee-soaked biscuits zuppa turca.
