Ask Allison: summer entertaining

Posted: Updated:

On this edition of Ask Allison, we talk about quick and easy desserts to make for guests.

A viewer writes, “I’m making the most of the season and having friends over for dinner. What’s the best quick and easy dessert you recommend for backyard entertaining?”

Allison brings in top pastry chef, Tom Wellings, at “Fiola” and “Casa Luca” in downtown D.C. to help her answer the question.

Recipe for Tom Wellings’ Sgroppino

  • Serves 2
  • 1 cup chilled Prosecco
  • 1 cup frozen sorbetto of your choice, fruit flavors work best


  • Add the sorbetto to a Mason jar or small pitcher.
  • Stir in the sorbetto with a small whisk until the mixture is creamy and frothy,
  • but not chunky.
  • Pour into frosty glasses, add a straw and enjoy!
