Strawberry Kebabs

Fresh strawberries with marscapone & a lemon tang.


  • 5 sticks fresh Rosemary

  • 6 fresh strawberries per person

  • 8 tablespoons Water

  • 1 cup caster sugar plus 2 tablespoons

  • 250 g Marscapone cheese

  • Limoncello chilled

  • 1 Lemon Zest


  • 1.

    Remove nearly all the leaves from the rosemary sticks, leaving a few on the end. Reserve the leaves.

  • 2.

    Cut the tops off the strawberries, then thread 6 on to each rosemary stick. Place the sticks on a wire rack over a tray.

  • 3.

    Put the water in a heavy-based pan with the sugar and bring to the boil. Give the pan a jiggle, but don't touch it too much. The mixture will clear, then bubble and then slowly get darker and darker. It's ready when it's a golden brown.

  • 4.

    Whisk the mascarpone with enough caster sugar to make it sweet (probably about 2 tablespoons, but you may need a little more or less).

  • 5.

    Drizzle in a little limoncello, then stir the rosemary leaves and a little lemon zest.

  • 6.

    Spoon some mascarpone in the centre of each plate, lay a kebab on top, and sprinkle with the remaining lemon zest.
