Method

  1. Rinse the strawberries in a colander, dry them well and hull them. Finely dice enough to fill two teaspoons. Set aside the rest to make a coulis.
  2. Carefully rinse the raspberries and pat them dry. Reserve four and set aside the rest for the coulis.
  3. Purée the fruit with the agave syrup and mineral water to make a coulis texture.
  4. Crush the half ladyfinger to fine crumbs. Put aside on a small plate.
  5. Remove the paper from the petit-suisse (or use a scoop of the unsalted ricotta) and carefully set it on a plate. Pour on the strawberry and raspberry coulis, then arrange the finely diced pieces of strawberry and the whole raspberries over and around it. Sprinkle with the crumbled ladyfingers and serve.

From 12 months

  • 50g strawberries
  • 50g raspberries
  • 1tsp agave syrup
  • 2tsp mineral water
  • Half a pink ladyfinger biscuit
  • 60g petit-suisse cheese (or unsalted ricotta)

TOP TIP

Try this with pear or apple and mango coulis in winter, in summer with peaches, apricots and plums. All fruits go well with soft cheese such as petit-suisse.
