    Fresh Berries with Late-Harvest Sabayon

    A nice biscotti makes the ideal accompaniment for this flavourful fix of fruit with its velvety topping. A frozen berry is fine in a pinch, but for the best results, feel free to play with whatever local organic fruits are available.

    1/2 cup (125 mL) blueberries
    1/2 cup (125 mL) raspberries
    1/2 cup (125 mL) blackberries
    1/2 cup (125 mL) strawberries
    6 cape gooseberries
    1 cup (500 mL) red wine
    4 Tbsp (60 mL) sugar
    1 bay leaf, fresh
    1/2 orange

    Combine red wine, sugar, bay leaf, and orange in a saucepot. Place over medium-high heat and simmer until wine is reduced by 3/4. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large bowl combine all berries and strain hot wine over them. Cool in fridge for one hour to macerate.
    Spoon the marinated berries into large wine or martini glasses.

    Sabayon

    4 egg yolks, free range organic
    4 Tbsp (60 mL) sugar
    2 oz (50 mL) late-harvest Riesling (or icewine)
    Pinch zested lemon

    Bring a small pot of water to steam over medium heat. Whisk together all ingredients in a stainless bowl until smooth. Create a double boiler by placing the stainless bowl over steaming water and continue to whisk until your sabayon is “nape” (coating the back of a spoon), about 5 to 7 minutes.

    Remove from heat, pour over the marinated berries, and serve immediately. Serves 4.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
