"We prepare an ice-cream base and change the flavours to suit our whims and the seasons," says Hird. "However, the same result can be achieved by making a parfait, which requires no machine for churning. Have fun with the meringue decoration and, if you're really game, warm up a little liqueur, dim the lights, ignite and enjoy the fireworks." You'll need to start this recipe a day in advance to freeze the parfait.
