Check out this indulgent chocolate mousse with soft blackberries and crunchy roasted hazelnuts. This easy dessert recipe comes from chef Jess Elliott Dennison’s Edinburgh restaurant, 27 Elliot’s.
The coolest, most irresistible ice cream sandwiches in existence. They’re surprisingly quick and easy to make and the ice cream part requires NO CHURNING whatsoever!
What better way to make use of a glut of blackberries than to make blackberry vodka, a perfect drink. You can experiment with different amounts of sugar but blackberries are quite tart so a little helps bring out the berry flavours.
This blackberry, ricotta and pigeon salad is low-calorie and ready in just 25 minutes but is packed with flavour. Low in fat and high in protein, pigeon is now stocked by supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, or ask your local butcher.
There’s no need for an ice cream machine here, just take it out of the freezer well before eating so it has a chance to soften a little. Pour over a glass of sherry for an extra special treat.
