Passion fruit is a favourite South African flavour during summer, however, it can be difficult to find great dishes to use this in. With these tropical fruits now being in season, we have a fabulous tried-and-tested recipe by renowned executive chef, Kerry Kilpin, from Steenberg Wine Estate.
“Over the years, passion fruit has featured as one of the components of many of my dishes. Passion fruit is one of my favourite fruits to use in desserts, especially during summertime. I love the sweet/sour flavour! My passion fruit tart can be made simply as a tart to enjoy at home, with minimal effort, or it can be used to accompany many flavours to make a more complex dessert.
This year it is featured on the New Year’s menu, at Tryn restaurant on the estate, and served with whipped coconut ganache, mango and lime salsa and yoghurt rocks.” says Kerry.
