Poppy seed White Chocolate Parfait with Strawberries

A total drool worthy first contribution from Padma…enjoy!!par

Padma says “On one of my visits to Napa Valley during my 16 years stay in California, I chanced upon this recipe in the hotel that I was staying at. As luck would have it, I also happened to have the Muscat wine with me which I had bought there. So it was only natural that upon my return back home the first thing I wanted to do was to try out this recipe.

My two little girls (they are all grown up now) declared it a super hit and after that the recipe got buried under the file all forgotten about.

In the meantime I relocated to India and IFF happened which made me dig out my collection of recipes. I think I can vouch for most of us when I say that IFF had made us all go through our treasure trove of recipes and put up our best.

Just a few days back I posted another dessert (cold) recipe and asked my daughter which one she liked more and needless to say the answer was Poppy Seed White Chocolate Parfait.”

Ingredients for Parfait:

1/2 cup white chocolate, finely chopped

2 tbsps poppy seeds

3 egg whites, room temperature

Pinch of salt

2 cups whipping cream

1/2 cup granulated sugar

 

Method:

Melt chocolate in the top of a double broiler and keep warm. In a large mixing bowl, whip egg whites with salt until soft peaks form. Continue whipping, adding sugar 2 tbsps at a time, until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, beat cream until stiff. Fold whipped cream into reserved whites. Working quickly, fold warm chocolate into cream mixture until completely incorporated. Fold in poppy seeds. Spoon mixture into a loaf pan and freeze several hours, or overnight, until firm.

 

Strawberries:

 

Ingredients:

2 cups strawberries, cleaned and sliced

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup Muscat (It’s a sweet dessert wine)

1 tsp orange zest

 

Method:

Combine strawberries with sugar, wine and orange zest. Set aside for 15 minutes to blend flavors.
