Bellini in Gelatina
Fresh Blackberry and Prosecco Jelly

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious blackberries recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly for you to enjoy.

This has to be the most stylish and yet easy dessert that you will ever make. Not only can you use this dish as a dessert, but you can also serve it as a great aperitif. You can substitute the Prosecco for a good Champagne and if you don’t want to use blackberries, you can use fresh strawberries. If you want to make fresh strawberry purée, just blitz 50g of fresh strawberries with 1 tablespoon of cold water and 1 teaspoon of honey into a smooth purée. Once the dessert is ready, you can decorate the jellies with a touch of whipped cream on top.

Feast your eyes on the finest fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Put the sugar in a medium saucepan with 300ml of water and the lemon zest. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, leave to cool and discard the lemon zest.

Put the lemon juice in a small bowl and sprinkle in the powdered gelatine. Leave to soak for 3–4 minutes. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, ensuring that the base of the bowl does not touch the water, for a couple of minutes until the gelatine has completely dissolved.

Stir the gelatine into the sugar syrup together with the strawberry purée and the Prosecco. Mix well.

Meanwhile, share out three quarters of the blackberries among six Champagne glasses and carefully pour over enough of the liquid jelly to cover the fruit and chill until set. When the jelly has set, pour over the remaining liquid jelly to the top of the glass and refrigerate for 5 hours until completely set.

Decorate with the reserved blackberries and serve.

Coppette di anguriaWatermelon Puddings

Watermelon pudding is a traditional dessert from Sicily’s capital, Palermo. It’s usually eaten during the three-day feast of Santa Rosalina in July. It generally includes only three ingredients – watermelon, sugar and cornflour – but the garnishes vary from area to area, ranging from cinnamon, jasmine and pistachios to chocolate chips (which are thought to resemble watermelon seeds).

Linguine Alla AmatricianaLinguine With Cherry Tomatoes, Pancetta And White Wine

With no doubt, I have to dedicate this recipe to my friend and manager Jeremy Hicks. We have known each other for seven years now and without fail he has to have this pasta dish at least once a week. I actually agree with him, it's one of my favourites too, because I just love the combination of the onion, pancetta and chilli. If you prefer, you can substitute linguine with spaghetti or tagliatelle.

Spigola con puré di cannellini e salsa al basilicoPan-Fried Sea Bass With Cannellini Mash & Basil Sauce

It has often been said that beans are the meat of the poor man, as they are a healthy alternative to meat, but in Italy, beans are used in pasta dishes, salads, mashed and spread on bruschetta - to name but a few options. They are used all day every day and are so incredibly good for you - packed with protein and soluble fibre, they make a really wonderful alternative to potatoes. The creamy bean mash...

Insalata di Finocchi, Arance e Crescione con Vinaigrette al TimoFennel, Orange & Watercress Salad with Thyme Vinaigrette

This zingy first-course salad takes only minutes to prepare yet is full of flavour and goodness. The peppery little leaves of the watercress are bursting with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making it one of our greatest natural superfoods, while the fennel and oranges are really rich in vitamin C. Try it with my Asparagus, Ricotta, Chilli and Parmesan Tartlets.

Zuppa di castagne e finocchi con salviaChestnut & Fennel Soup With Sage

Italy is the world’s third largest producer of chestnuts and Sicilians love them. Ever since I moved to the UK, I’ve slowly started to associate chestnuts with Christmas, but I must revert to my former thinking – chestnuts can be, and should be, enjoyed all year round. This recipe uses frozen chestnuts so availability will not be an issue.

Crocchette di Barbabietola e SalmoneBeetroot Rosti with Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Cream

I have to admit that I'm not a great lover of beetroot, probably because I don’t particularly like sweet and sour together. This, however, is one of the few ways that I will eat beetroot because it works beautifully with the smoked salmon. If you are a beetroot virgin – here you go, this is the one to try. Make sure that you cook the rostis until they are very crispy.
