Whip Up a Treat with Will Torrent

If you are looking to impress your friends and family this Christmas, why not whip up a treat and serve a great British trifle with a modern twist.

Developed by Will Torrent, award-winning patissier and rising celebrity chef, we have a truly delicious recipe for this festive-favourite that is sure to excite everyone’s tastebuds.

Will’s recipe includes a few shortcuts for the time conscious but he enriches this classic dessert using quality ingredients for a truly luxurious taste. The modern twist includes mouth-watering white chocolate, vanilla custard, fresh berries and glazed meringue.

“The secret behind a really delicious dessert is the ingredients” says Will, “I use the best I can buy in order to guarantee great results. Nielsen-Massey’s Vanilla Bean Paste not only looks good, it adds depth of flavour to all types of dishes, and is so convenient too”.

With over a century of experience, Nielsen-Massey produces a vanilla that is arguably the best in the world. The family company uses an exclusive cold extraction process to extract the vanilla from carefully selected pods. The range includes pure Madagascan Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Bean Paste. A welcome addition to every kitchen cupboard, the bean paste is a high-quality, convenient and economical replacement to vanilla pods.
