Method

  • 01
  • For ice-cream, combine cream and Champagne in a saucepan and bring just to the boil. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl sitting over gently simmering water until thick and pale, then pour over cream mixture, whisking to combine. Return to pan and cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, for 5-6 minutes or until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain into a bowl placed over ice and cool completely. Freeze in an ice-cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions, then freeze overnight. Makes about 600ml.

  • 03
  • To serve, top jellies with raspberries and serve with Champagne ice-cream.

Note For sugar syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to the boil, then cool completely and refrigerate for up to 1 year.
