The perfect desert

The perfect desert

This month we asked our friend, Bradley Hornby, Chef and owner of Marlborough's only 2 hatted restaurant, Arbour, to supply us with a recipe to match our 2018 FROMM Beerenauslese Riesling. 

The outcome? Caramelised Yoghurt with local strawberries and milk crisp. A sensational match and a lighter option for those balmy summer evenings we are on the cusp of enjoying. 


Caramelised Yoghurt with Local Strawberries and Milk Crisp

This recipe for caramelised yoghurt mousse is one of our favourites at Arbour. It is the perfect foil for local new season strawberries and bright bursts of citrus flavour from the lemon balm and sorrel. I hope you enjoy recreating this recipe with all types of beautiful fruit and berries in the warmer months!
