You'll need

1 kg watermelon, seeded, sliced into thin bite-sized wedges 750 gm strawberries (about 3 punnets), hulled, halved 440 gm (2 cups) caster sugar 1 tbsp each rosewater and ouzo 2 tbsp pure icing sugar, sieved To serve: thick Greek-style yoghurt (optional)   Strawberry yoghurt parfait 160 gm strawberries, hulled, halved 340 ml pouring cream 4 eggwhites 200 gm caster sugar 50 gm thick Greek-style yoghurt   Meringue kisses 100 gm eggwhite (about 3 eggs) 150 gm caster sugar

Method

  • 01
  • For strawberry yoghurt parfait, process strawberries in a food processor until smooth, pass through a sieve into a bowl and set aside. Whisk cream in an electric mixer until soft peaks form (2-3 minutes) and refrigerate until required. Whisk eggwhite and a pinch of salt in the clean bowl of electric mixer until soft peaks form (2-3 minutes), gradually add sugar and whisk until glossy (2-3 minutes). Fold into cream, then fold in strawberry purée and yoghurt. Spoon into a container, cover and freeze until firm (overnight). Makes about 1.2 litres.
  • 02
  • For meringue kisses, preheat oven to 120C. Whisk eggwhite in an electric mixer until soft peaks form (1-2 minutes), gradually add sugar and whisk until glossy and firm peaks form (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle and pipe 2cm-diameter rounds onto an oven tray lined with baking paper. Bake until just crisp but not coloured (30-40 minutes), turn off oven and cool in oven with door ajar. Meringue kisses will keep stored in an airtight container for a week.
  • 03
  • Combine watermelon and two-thirds of the strawberries in a large bowl and set aside. Stir sugar and 500ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, add rosewater and ouzo, then pour over fruit. Cover and refrigerate until chilled (2-3 hours).
  • 04
  • Purée icing sugar and remaining strawberries in a blender, strain through a fine sieve into a bowl and refrigerate until required.
  • 05
  • Divide fruit among chilled glasses, top with scoops of parfait, drizzle with strawberry purée and serve with yoghurt and meringue kisses.
