I don't think I could write a book that didn't include a recipe for trifle somewhere - and this, I tell you, is the trifle to end all trifles. The shiny black of the berries, the soft whiteness of the mascarpone above them and the golden toastiness of the almonds on top, make it, in the first instance, beautiful to look at.
The Anglo factor is provided by the trifle sponges, jam and hedgerow-redolent fruit; the amaretti, limoncello - or any other lemon liqueur - and tiramisu-like eggy mascarpone layer fulfil the Italian side of the partnership.
