Tell me about what you do for your father in law.
– He loved sabayon. But I had never done it before, but since he was so fond of it just as I was taught. Then there was always sabayon.

– We could make a dessert with a story and then it was obvious to make sabayon. But it was also a reminder of him, strong feelings for someone I really loved.
– I wanted to show him how grateful I was. It was his, in a way his fault that I ended up in Sweden …
