Strawberry vacherin

Photo: From 365 Good Reasons to Sit Down to Eat by Stephane Reynaud

Strawberry vacherin

Ingredients

  • 1kg strawberries
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 300ml pouring (whipping) cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar, or to taste
  • 3 large store-bought meringues

Method

Hull the strawberries, slice them in half.

Puree 300 grams (two cups) of the strawberries with the lemon juice to make a coulis.

Whip the cream into a chantilly with the vanilla sugar*.

Crush the meringues.

Build the vacherin layer by layer in a glass: strawberries, coulis, meringue, chantilly. Repeat.

Serve immediately**.

*Have the bowl and cream well chilled.

**Otherwise the coulis will bleed into the cream and it won't be very chic.
