Vanilla Cream with Raspberry Coulis


Only a few more weeks and I can pick my own raspberries again. Due to the long winter the harvest is a bit later this year. But I’m really looking forward to my outings to the pick your own farms. Here in the Netherlands there are plenty. I’m keeping a close eye on their websites where they communicate when their bushes are ready to harvest. My top 3 of pick your own farms is:

  1. Raspberry Maxx in Meijel (Brabant)
  2. Van Reeuwijk in Abbenes (Noord-Holland)
  3. De Hoenderik in Tricht (Gelderland)

In the meantime I get my raspberries at the farmers market. Yesterday I whipped up a beautiful looking dessert with fresh raspberries: Vanilla cream with a raspberry coulis. Scroll down for the full recipe.
