Sangria'd Strawberry Zabaglione Parfait

Amy Freeze


This recipe was originally created as my finals recipe for the 2015 World Food Championships Dessert category. Our goal was to create a unique dessert featuring Florida Strawberries. I combined a traditional zabaglione with true Florida and strawberries. The result was a cool, creamy, citrusy, elegant dessert.

    Whisk egg yolks, egg, sugar, oj and Grand Marnier in a double boiler until light and creamy. Place over simmering water and cook for 10 minutes or until thick. Pour into a bowl to chill.

Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and chill.
