Dish history

'White Caprese' is a delicious alternative version to the classical Caprese chocolate cake, with which it shares some of the main ingredients - eggs, almonds and butter. Its innovation lays in the use of white chocolate to contrast the bitter flavour of the lemons. The recipe originates from the Isle of Capri, from which it takes its name.
