This dessert is based upon the traditional idea of an American ‘jelly’ and peanut butter sandwich. Cliveden House has many links with America, most notably to the Astor Family, one of the wealthiest American families at the turn of the 1900s, who owned Cliveden House. This dish pays homage to its American roots and has the smooth parfait with a note of salt and bitterness due to the salted caramel, with added textures and flavours from the chocolate foam and crumble. Add to this home made English raspberry jam and a sprinkle of popping candy.

18 – 22 June 2014, Regents Park London
