Sparkling Zabaglione with Winter Tropical Fruits


    1/2 cup (125 mL) sparkling white wine
    1/4 cup (60 mL) coconut sugar
    3 large free-range egg yolks
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla or almond extract 
    1/4 cup (60 mL) crème fraîche or plain yogurt


    Fruit Compote
    1 red papaya, peeled and seeds removed
    3 ripe, firm bananas, peeled and sliced
    2 kiwi, peeled and sliced
    1/4 cup (60 mL) large flaked toasted coconut

    To make zabaglione: Whisk wine, sugar, yolks, and vanilla in large metal bowl until blended. Place bowl over large saucepan of simmering water. Do not allow metal bowl with eggs to touch water.

    Whisk constantly over simmering water until mixture is thickened and candy thermometer reads 160 F (71 C), about 2 minutes. Remove from simmering water and beat with electric mixer until tripled in volume and cooled, about 5 minutes.

    Whisk crème fraîche, if using, and fold into cooled zabaglione. Chill until ready to assemble.

    To serve: Cut papaya into cubes. Divide evenly among 8 stemmed dessert glasses. Top with slices of banana and kiwi. Pour equal portions of zabaglione over top of each and garnish with sprinkles of toasted coconut.

    Lemon Grass and Chili Flank Steak Lettuce Wrap Board with Mango Sauce

    Inspired by the flavours of Vietnamese-style summer rolls, this satisfying dinner is built around a marinated flank steak that will stretch to feed a crowd. Marinating flank steak over several hours tenderizes a cut that starts out tougher than some others but can’t be beat for flavour. The marinade flavours of lemon grass, lime, mint, cilantro, and red chilies shine through and are topped off with a spicy mango dressing. Those enjoying this board can choose to eat salad-style or make lettuce wraps filled with slices of beef and a host of crunchy vegetables. Party perfect If you don’t have a board big enough to accommodate everything, split items between two smaller boards. If you’re serving over a few hours, you can also keep some of the ingredients back from the board, in the refrigerator. This will help you keep the board replenished and looking good as stocks are depleted. Leftover sauce makes a great marinade for coleslaw.
