My pastry recipe is perfect for those who feel they have hot hands. Usually, cool hands and a light touch are needed when making pastry, but this version is made using the creaming method rather than rubbing in cubes of butter. Pelargonium Graveolens, a member of the rose geranium family, lends its beautiful fragrance. If you don’t grow them or can’t find any leaves, leave them out or use a split vanilla pod instead. Serve warm with softly whipped cream and brown sugar.
Tokaji is a wonderful combination of freshness, sweetness and lush fruitiness, and this example is exceptionally good. Royal Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2005 Tokaji, Hungary. Bin 20817; £10.95/25cl.
