Bonjour mes belles,

I hope that you have had a fabulous week. Ours has been a lovely sunny one and we have another sunny, warm week to come.
This week's recipe involves two of my favourite ingredients; strawberries and champagne.

Strawberries in Champagne with crème Chantilly


Ingredients
500 gm strawberries (about 2 punnets), hulled and thinly sliced
100 ml Champagne or sparkling wine 
 Juice of ½ orange 
1-2 tbsp pure icing sugar, or to taste, sieved 

To serve: freeze-dried raspberries and shop-bought sablés or wafer biscuits   Crème Chantilly 250 ml thickened cream 30 gm pure icing sugar, sieved Scraped seeds of 1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Method

  • Combine strawberries, wine, orange juice and icing sugar in a bowl and mix well, then refrigerate to macerate (15 minutes).
  • For crème Chantilly, whisk ingredients in a bowl until soft peaks form, then refrigerate until required.
  • To serve, divide strawberry mixture among chilled glasses, spoon crème Chantilly on top, scatter with freeze-dried raspberries and serve with sablés or wafer biscuits.

  2. Leeann, this sounds lovely. I have always used cognac , which adds a stronger 'kick'. Bon week-end
