Strawberry granita

  • 300g of English strawberries, puréed, a few extra for garnish

Arabesque wafers

For the strawberry granita, bring the water to the boil in a saucepan. Once boiling, add the glucose and stir to dissolve
  • 120ml of water
  • 25g of liquid glucose
After 2-3 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the strawberry purée and the rose water to the pan. Mix well then place in a suitable container, store in the freezer until required
For the arabesque wafers, preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. In a pan, melt the butter and mix together with orange juice and icing sugar
  • 250g of icing sugar
  • 100g of unsalted butter
  • 100ml of orange juice
Stir in the sifted flour and cocoa powder. Once thoroughly mixed, spread finely onto a non-stick baking sheet. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes or until lightly coloured with bubbles appearing. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool
Remove the strawberry granita from the freezer. Break up the strawberry granita with a fork to achieve a snow-like texture. Place into a suitable bowl or glass and top with some fresh strawberries
To serve, break the wafer into suitably sized pieces. Arrange the wafers next to the strawberry granita and serve
