Bellini in Gelatina
Fresh Blackberry and Prosecco Jelly

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious blackberries recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly for you to enjoy.

This has to be the most stylish and yet easy dessert that you will ever make. Not only can you use this dish as a dessert, but you can also serve it as a great aperitif. You can substitute the Prosecco for a good Champagne and if you don’t want to use blackberries, you can use fresh strawberries. If you want to make fresh strawberry purée, just blitz 50g of fresh strawberries with 1 tablespoon of cold water and 1 teaspoon of honey into a smooth purée. Once the dessert is ready, you can decorate the jellies with a touch of whipped cream on top.

Feast your eyes on the finest fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Put the sugar in a medium saucepan with 300ml of water and the lemon zest. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, leave to cool and discard the lemon zest.

Put the lemon juice in a small bowl and sprinkle in the powdered gelatine. Leave to soak for 3–4 minutes. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, ensuring that the base of the bowl does not touch the water, for a couple of minutes until the gelatine has completely dissolved.

Stir the gelatine into the sugar syrup together with the strawberry purée and the Prosecco. Mix well.

Meanwhile, share out three quarters of the blackberries among six Champagne glasses and carefully pour over enough of the liquid jelly to cover the fruit and chill until set. When the jelly has set, pour over the remaining liquid jelly to the top of the glass and refrigerate for 5 hours until completely set.

Decorate with the reserved blackberries and serve.

Every Italian loves coffee but I have decided to dedicate this recipe to my good friend Peter Andre.

The creamy ricotta cheese paired with the strong coffee is amazing.

Pizza Con Zucchine E Aceto BalsamicoPizza With Courgettes & Balsamic Glaze

I love grilled courgettes, but sometimes it’s just a hassle to prepare them, particularly if I’m hungry and need feeding right now! Here I can get the same flavour and texture by simply tossing them on top of this fantastic pizza. It looks amazing with all the overlapping circles of cheese and courgette – a real showstopper.

Insalata di FagioliniFrench Beans with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Feta and Mozzarella

This recipe (like most of my recipes) happened by accident. I was hosting a barbecue party and a friend of mine challenged me to make something that resembled the colours of the Italian flag. I went to the fridge, got hold of everything green, white and red and came up with this masterpiece. Today, it has become one of my signature dishes among my friends and we still enjoy it at every barbecue party....

Torrone sardoSardinian Nougat

Nougat is sold in the street markets in most towns in Sardinia and the variations on offer are vast. The one I have chosen to feature in this book is the classic and most popular version and, in my opinion, the best. You can store it in an airtight container for up to a week, but don’t put it in the fridge as it will become soft and very sticky.
