Happy Valentines day xxx

The food that always reminds me of Valentines day is Oysters.
A dozen nice Sydney rock oysters is definately a must on the 14 th of Feb.

But my all time favourite on Valentines day is dessert.
A Coeur a la Creme is the perfect Valentines dessert . A heart of cream is the english translation so t is very appropriate for Valentines day.

You will need to have a heart shape mould for this dessert and if you live in the eastern suburbs they sell these Moulds at Peter's of Kensington on Anzac parade.

The ingredients

200gms of Mascapone (Cream cheese is also an option but I do like the Mascapone better)
100gms of clotted cream (or double cream)
80gms caster sugar
1 vanilla pod scrapped
2 egg whites

Whisk the cream with the sugar and vanilla till soft peaks are formed. Separately whisk the egg whites till they peak.
In a seperate bowl fold together gently the mascapone , egg whites and cream till they are combined.
Line the heart shape mould with cheese cloth or if you have no cheese cloth use muslin cloth.
Refridgerate over night to drain.
When you serve the dessert gently turn out the Coeur a la creme onto the plate and serve with berries or couli.

Enjoy your dessert
