Christmas is almost here and 2019 is knocking at our door. What could be better than something sweet to see out the year. Dea Kaker, a designer with extraordinary cooking skills, is here to reveal one of her amazing sweet recipes for a sorbet with a taste that would explode in your mouth. We called it 'Crimson Brown Sorbet' and its a grapes-based sorbet served on a soft & crunchy brownie base.


300 g Crimson Seedless grapes
700 g Concord grapes
140 g Linden honey
2 tbsp Juniper berries
1 tbsp Black pepper
1 Cinnamon stick
1/2 Lemon juice
4 branches of thyme
2 Branches of rosemary
2 tbsp gin

> wash the grapes and blend them
> put the blended grape juice in a pot together with all the other ingredients (except for the gin)
> cook on medium heat for approx. 35-45 min, until the juice gets thicker
> pour the mixture through a fine mesh
> let it cool for 2 hours
> in order to make the sorbet smoother add the gin to the mixture
> put the mixture into the ice maker and let it do the rest

Tip: For a better texture of the sorbet, prepare the mixture one evening in advance
