But now! Tonight we had dinner in an Italian restaurant, and there was something called chocolate hazelnut schiuma on the menu. "What is schiuma, please?" I asked our waitress, pronouncing it as though it was shumai without the final vowel twist. She said, "Ski-u-mah is a kind of very light mousse, almost a foam."
So now we know. Foam, Minnesota! Foam!
I did not have schiuma, even though it is apparently our Secret State Dessert. I had a dark chocolate brownie with pistachio and raspberry. And now you know.
