How to prepare Wild berry tiramisù

To make the wild berry tiramisu, first wash the berries and dry them. Remove the stalks from the strawberries 1 and cut them into small pieces 2. Add the chopped raspberries 3

and strawberries 4 to the jug of an immersion blender. Then add the brown sugar 5 and lemon juice 6.

Next, blitz everything with the blender 7 to get a smooth mixture. Sweeten the mixture with honey 8 and add the seeds of half a vanilla bean 9.

Now emulsify the mixture again with the blender 10. Set aside the mixture 11 and cut the ladyfingers in half 12.

Pour the heavy cream into a bowl, add the powdered sugar 13, and whip with the whisk to get a frothy cream 14. Separately, add the vanilla seeds 15

to the mascarpone so they impart their flavor, then fold in the whipped cream a little at a time, stirring gently from the bottom up to keep it from curdling 16. Transfer the resulting creamy mixture to a pastry bag (17-18).

Squeeze a first layer of the mixture into glasses measuring 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter and approximately 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) tall 19. Dip a ladyfinger cut in half in the red berry coulis 20, place it in the glass and add one more layer of cream 21.

Now squeeze on more mixture and add 4-5 raspberries 22. Add another layer of ladyfingers 23 and finish with a final layer of mixture 24.

Top your wild berry tiramisu with a few teaspoonfuls of leftover sauce 25 and finish by garnishing with a few berries to taste 26 as well as fresh mint leaves 27.

Storage

Keep the wild berry tiramisu in the refrigerator for a couple of days at most. Not suitable for freezing.
