Summer Berry Christmas Trifle
Christmas aren't Christmas without having summer berry Christmas trifle on the dessert table. This is a lovely variation of trifle: a summer berry Christmas trifle. It is beautiful in the red colours, perfect to represent red as one of the Christmas colours. With the fresh strawberries, white cream, soft yellow custard and red wine jelly it is absolutely delicious.
I have made this delicious summer berry Christmas trifle while doing the Christmas Lunch at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm. It was a stunner on the table, afterwards when clearing the foods tables there were none left over. For a chef working on Christmas Day, you are fulfilled when the food were all eaten!
As a child our Christmas table always had trifle as desserts. My mom used to make the cold buffet foods a day or so in advance and trifle was always part of the table.
Trifle is of English Origin, and is popular all over the world. I myself are not very fond of trifle, but I have enjoyed this one in particular, because it is made with the lovely summer berries and the nuts on top. You get all kinds of variations, but the ones made with raspberries, strawberries and blue berries are my favourite. You can of course use other different kinds of fruits.
In this particular summer berry Christmas trifle, I use rose wine to give it a lovely flavour.
