This dessert is light, refreshing, and best served al-fresco on a balmy evening with friends. Using fresh raspberries picked from our Kitchen Garden, which are at their best during the summer months, it’s one of the stars on our Potting Shed menu.
Edible flowers make this dish a picture-perfect end to an evening meal. Follow the recipe below to bring a touch of summer to your dinner party.
