Ingredients

1kg bought sponge cake or panettone, cut into 2-3cm pieces
300ml ctn thickened cream, whipped
Strawberries, washed, hulled, halved, to decorate
Pure icing sugar, to dust

Strawberry compote

3 x 250g punnets strawberries, washed, hulled
375ml (1 1/2 cups) dessert wine
55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar

Vanilla bean custard

35g (1/4 cup) custard powder
55g (1/4 cup) caster sugar
625ml (2 1/2 cups) milk
250ml (1 cup) thickened cream
1 vanilla bean, split lengthways
250g ctn mascarpone

Method

To make the strawberry compote, stir the strawberries, wine and sugar in a saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until strawberries are soft but still hold their shape. Set aside to cool completely.

To make the vanilla bean custard, combine the custard powder and sugar in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the milk and cream until smooth. Add the vanilla bean. Whisk over medium-low heat until the mixture boils and thickens. Boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Cover the surface of the custard with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming. Set aside to cool completely. Remove and discard the vanilla bean. Fold the mascarpone into the custard.

Place half the sponge or panettone in a 3L (12-cup) capacity glass serving bowl. Top with half the strawberry compote and half the custard. Repeat with remaining sponge or panettone, strawberry compote and custard. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight to chill.

Top with cream and strawberry. Dust with icing sugar.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
