 Zuppa inglese is one of italy’s most popular deserts.
 It is best mak a day ahead.
 
 Select a wide glass bowl. Spread the insides of the ladyfingers with jam and
 arrange then in the bowl.
 Sprinkle with the sherry or rum and set aside.
 In a small pan off the heat, beat the yolks with 2 tablespoons of sugar.Mix in
 the cornstarch. Stir in the salt, lemon zest and milk.
 Place over very low heat and stir constantly until the custard is thick enough
 to coat the spoon, about 7 minutes.
 Pour the custard over the lady fingers and arrange a layer of sliced
 strawberries on top.
 Whip the cream, adding the remaining sugar and a dash of vanilla, then spread
 in over the fruit.
 Pare chocolate shavings onto the cream. Decorate with the whole strawberries
 and chill before serving.
