The “base” of Alessia’s desserts is almost always made up, in a variable manner, of 3 ingredients: Flour, Milk / Butter and Eggs.
Obviously Alessia prepares many desserts without eggs, or with soy milk, or for vegans, but in most cases there is the presence of these 3 basic ingredients, and these ingredients can cause even serious and dangerous allergies.
