Strawberries Romanoff from Brennan’s Restaurant

Updated: Jan 4, 2020

This past weekend was the 42nd Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival. Ponchatoula, the Strawberry capital of the World, is a hour Northwest of New Orleans. The strawberry is the state fruit of Louisiana. There is no better time for Louisiana Strawberries. Here is a recipe from Brennan’s. They  run this dessert as a special during the strawberry season.

3 cups sliced Strawberries

1/2 cup Grand Marnier

2 tablespoons Drambuie

1/4 cup Sugar

1 teaspoon grated Orange Peel

1 teaspoon grated Lemon Peel

1 cup Heavy Cream

2 tablespoons Powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla

2 1/2 pints French Vanilla Ice Cream

In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, Grand Marnier, Drambuie, sugar, orange peel, and lemon peel. Cover the bowl and marinate the strawberries for 6 hours in the refrigerator. In another bowl, beat the cream until stiff, then fold in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Drain the strawberries and place them in a non-metallic bowl; reserve the liquid. Mash the strawberries with a fork, then fold in the ice cream. Spoon the strawberry and ice cream mixture into stemmed glasses and spoon some of the marinade over the mixture. Top with whipped cream and serve.
