So simple, it’s hardly a recipe at all, strawberries in Cointreau is my go-to dish when I want a super-quick delicious finish to a meal. It’s perfect for a night in for two, and just as easily multiplied for a casual dinner party. In summer, when it’s easier to get full-flavoured strawberries, I often just marinate them for a few hours or overnight, and don’t bother cooking them. I enjoy a sparkling rosé with this dish, like the one from Pierre’s Wines in the Hunter Valley. It’s much drier than you’d normally serve with dessert, but I liked the contrast, and the smoky, funkiness from the wood-matured pinot noir that’s blended into the chardonnay-pinot base before bottling. For a more conservative match there’s always a little more Cointreau. See video below for another deliciously boozy fruity French dessert.
