Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Soft fruits in sabayon : Photo of step #1
Mix 200 g soft fruit of your choice (raspberries, blackcurrants, bluberries, raspberries, currants...). Aim to include at least 3 kinds. You can use frozen fruit.

Wash the fruit quickly under running cold water, drain and dry them on a cloth.

If these fruits are not treated or come from your garden, just rinse very briefly, they will taste better.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Put 50 g caster sugar in a non-stick frying pan on high heat, tip fruit on top, stir gently.

Stage 3 - 2 min.

Barely cook the fruit (one or two minutes), just so that sugar melts, mixes with the juice, and coats the fruit.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Stage 4 - 30 min.

You can, if you want, just before serving, "burn" sabayon with a blow lamp, which adds an excellent hint of caramel flavour, but it's not essential.


If you're not familiar with sabayon, you can replace it with a real custard (crème anglaise).

Butter cream
Butter cream is made with egg yolk, sugar syrup and, of course, butter. These days it has fallen rather out of fashion, probably because it's very rich, but it still has its aficionados. Here is the classic plain version, which you can lighten and flavour as you wish.

Flambéd bananas
The trick of this recipe is to end up with bananas caramelised on the outside, still firm on the inside, coated with a tasty syrup which is not 95% butter.

Crème brulée
Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
