  • Summary

    At the mention of this British dessert, my mind races through the various references to fools, from the fool that accompanied King Lear on his journey across the howling heath, to the modern question "What kind of fool are you?" But the name of this delicate dessert actually comes from the French word fouler, meaning to press or crush, referring to the crushed fruits that are gently folded into thick cream. It is this simplicity that makes the dish shine. And as the British fool, I get to choose the berries and sing "here we go round the mulberry bush" as I dish up!

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
    • 1 cup fruit compote
    • 1 pound seasonal fruit (such as blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, or rhubarb), trimmed
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • couple of splashes of elderflower or ginger syrup (optional)
