“I'm posting this recipe for ZWT 5, it comes from "Dine Around The World", a lovely cookbook a friend gave me many years ago. It states "This typical summer dish comes from the exquisite cuisine of Madeira." Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the mid Atlantic Ocean . It is a popular year-round resort, noted for its Madeira wine, flowers, and embroidery artisans. Please note that this dish requires overnight chilling in the fridge after assembly.”
