photo and recipe from here
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
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
- 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.
...bonne fin de semaine à tous, Leeann x
