As Andy Warhol used to say, "Life's too short. Eat dessert first." So even though I plan to post about several of the dishes from this year's Easter dinner at my friend Nick's, I'll start with the chef himself holding up his magnificent Cassata alla Sulmonese. Several layers of butter cream, each incorporating a different mix-in (torrone, croccante, chopped chocolate, etc.) I confess that I picked a little at the crumbs during cleanup after the guests left.
