Valentine’s honey fool



  • 2 tablespoons orange blossom honey
  • 3 tablespoons dry, fragrant white wine
  • 2 teaspoons cognac
  • ¼ of a lemon
  • 150 ml double cream
  • 2 teaspoons flaked almonds


Place the honey, wine and cognac into a bowl. Finely grate in the zest (you need 1 teaspoon in total) and squeeze in the juice. Stir well, cover and chill overnight.

Just before dinner, pour in the cream and whisk until bulky, then allow to chill again slightly.

Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan over a medium-high heat.

Serve the honey fool in wineglasses, sprinkled with the toasted almonds.
