It’s about time a new boozy dessert stepped into the limelight.
It’s about time a new boozy dessert stepped into the limelight. And it’s the best one we’ve tasted yet. We’re talking about Chef Alysia Chan’s modern, deconstructed take on an old favourite, where the classic layered trifle is taken apart and updated with edgier, modern flavours. She takes a gamble with grapefruit, a fruit that’s challenging to work with because of its bittersweet character. What you get is a tart, lively grapefruit-and-campari curd that goes perfectly with a soft, moist vanilla pound cake. Guess the gamble paid oﬀ.
