“Zuppa Inglese” The word “zuppa” (soup) in Italian cuisine refers to both sweet and savory dishes. It comes from the verb “inzuppare” which means “to dunk”. Since ladyfingers are dipped in Alchermes liqueur, the dish is called Zuppa. One theory states that it originated in the sixteenth-century kitchens of the Dukes of Este, the rulers of Ferrara. According to this story, they asked their cooks to recreate the sumptuous English trifle they had enjoyed in England at the Elizabethan court, where they were frequent visitors.
