It is Burn’s Night in just two days. Now with all that whisky flowing you’d think there was no need to serve the golden juice as a dessert in this Whisky Granita, but why the hell not! You can never have too much of a good thing as my Mum used to say, so drink…
Forget the scoop of ice-cream, try my frozen Drambuie souffles as your chilled dessert of choice. These are so posh looking they are perfect for a supper party and definitely one for the grown-ups as they do have that all-important Drambuie liqueur in there.
Pesto Ice-cream, have I lost you completely now? Do you think I have lost the plot entirely, a savoury ice-cream, is she totally mad? No, dear reader my pesto ice-cream may well be savoury in nature but it makes a jolly good dessert and it’s definitely something different at a dinner party!
Desserts for summer tend to fall straight into the ice-cream and sugar packed creamy things variety. Yes they are lovely and I do make plenty of those, but sometimes something lighter is called for and my tutti fruity sugar free sorbet hits the spot perfectly. Sweet, spoonable delight and sugar free too.
Flummery (what a wonderful word) is an ancient recipe that has featured in Scottish feasts dating right back to the 15th century. It is an easy recipe but you will have to soak the oatmeal for 48 hours prior to making the dish so plan ahead.
Roast Figs with Honey and Orange, one of those desserts that is simplicity in itself yets tastes so damn good you’ll wonder why you haven’t been making this for years. It will instantly be on your favourite recipe list and a go-to for supper parties.
A deconstructed peach melba is so much more fun and grown-up than the usual peach half and a dollop of ice-cream that so many restaurants think does the job. My version is healthy, sugar free and just jolly damn tasty, the perfect end to a super supper.
Strawberry Chia Parfet is the perfect dessert for those looking for a healthy sugar free alternative to the usual sweet summer time puddings. The chia seeds are packed with protein and with the goodness of strawberries, almond milk, yogurt and almonds you really do have something heavenly and healthy too.
