Rhubarb & Rose Sorbet

rhubarb rose sorbet

I’ll be honest. I’m not normally the greatest fan of sorbets – unless the fan is on at full blast and it’s terribly hot outside.  Last year during our heat-wave in Paris, I discovered a rhubarb and rose sorbet at our popular French frozen-food store, Picard.  I was so hooked, I’d marked it in my diary to make my own homemade version as soon as it was rhubarb season.  Well, the time has come!

Now I’m hooked on this without a heatwave.  It’s also a perfect dessert to serve for Mother’s Day, as it can be made in advance. Here I served it with delicious crunchy almond Tuiles – one of my favourite, quickest and easiest recipes in Teatime in Paris, plus rhubarb chipsDon’t forget a bunch of roses on the side for Mum.
