Strawberry purée:

Hull strawberries and purée in blender with sugar. Strain purée to obtain a smooth sauce. Add a few drops of lemon juice.


Mix egg yolks, sugar and Banyuls in a heatproof bowl. Whisk vigorously over a large saucepan of gently simmering water. Avoid cooking at too high a temperature*. When the mixture is light coloured, smooth and creamy, add Canadian Mascarpone cheese.

Mix berries into strawberry sauce. Place in the centre of plates and pour sabayon around berry mixture. Place plates under broiler for a few seconds until sabayon is barely golden. Decorate with berries.

*When whisking sabayon over simmering water, the bowl should not get too hot to touch.
