Cherries, currants, raspberries, blueberries, mulberries, and strawberries all shine and shimmer like rubies in a single festive dessert dish. Perfect for the holidays and romantic occasions, red fruit festival is quite a sight to behold. The different shades and hues of reds are such a brilliant spectacle for the eyes and can be considered as one of the best fruit dessert.
You can hardly distinguish the heady aroma of the fruits from the other. The textures and most of all, the flavors, dance and sing in the palate like an ecstatic love song. A sexy and alluring dessert dish, red fruits festival should be paired with an equally seductive red wine like Maury, a dessert wine made in the Roussillon wine region of France.
You need an ice cream maker to make the mulberry sherbet and lemon sherbet that accompany the fresh fruits. Vanilla ice cream is also used in this recipe to make a beautiful pile of varied-colored and multi-flavored sherbet and ice cream delight. As if all that wasn’t enough, sugared biscuits are also served with the red fruits, sherbet, and ice cream and the whole dish is topped with luscious raspberry sauce.
Anyone, whether adult or kid, will simply be in awe when you serve them this over-the-top gourmet dessert. While opulent, the style and manner in which it is presented makes it elegant and classy. If you want to really take it beyond the moon and towards outer limits, make a caramel sauce by melting sugar and butter, whisking until smooth and adding cream, still mixing until luscious. No one will ever forget this giddying and overwhelming dessert once they behold and taste it. Make dinner extra-special with this super-dessert as grand finale.
