Strawberries Romanoff

The strawberries are coming!  The strawberries are coming!!!  There are SO many awesome things about spring approaching, and this happens to be one of them!  I bet if you close your eyes and think about it, you can smell that magical sweet smell.  One of my favorite memories of strawberries is going to la Madeleine French bakery and cafe with my mom and having Strawberries Romanoff for dessert.  Mmmm.

The story I've been told, it that this la Madeleine favorite can be traced back to a 1950s Hollywood restaurant called Romanoff's on Rodeo Drive.  Credit for the original recipe goes to a famous and influential French chef, Auguste Escoffier.  Lord have mercy, this stuff is AMAZING!  You probably have the ingredients at your house already, and this is absolutely perfect for a special brunch parfait, light dinner dessert, etc.  


Ingredients:  (4 servings)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brandy (or cognac)
    • substitute high quality vanilla if you prefer to not use alcohol
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries
You can make this sauce in about 5 minutes! 

Step-by-Step:
Mix sour cream, brown sugar, and brandy.
1/2 cup sour cream

3 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp brandy (or cognac)


In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until it starts to thicken.  Then add sugar and whip until thick.
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


3 Tbsp sugar

 Fold cream into the sour cream mixture and blend well.

Serve with fresh strawberries.  We also garnished with a sprig of mint and a little orange zest; however this is quite optional.
