Originally I had intended to only post about recipes I had made but this one from recipes4us seemed so gorgeous that I couldn’t resist posting it here at the start of Chocolate Week, even though I have never made it. It serves four ordinary people or two chocaholics.

4 Egg Yolks
3 tbsp Caster Sugar
120ml/4fl.oz. Sweet Sherry
100g/4oz Dark Chocolate, shavings or coarsely grated

1. Put the egg yolks and sugar in the bowl and whisk until the mixture is light and creamy.
2. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, add the wine and continue to beat with a whisk until the mixture becomes thick and forms soft peaks.
3. Remove from the heat then add the chocolate and mix gently.
4. Spoon the Sabayon into individual glasses and serve immediately.

(Don’t forget that the left-over egg whites can be used for meringues.)
