Rhubarb Fool. Food of the World Party - UK edition

I was so excited we were visiting the United Kingdom this month for Food of the World. It’s a place I feel I know a bit more about their food.  My first thought was crumpets and tea. Seeing as how I don’t actually drink tea though, and the crumpets were awfully similar to pancakes, I decided to go a different route.

Check it out! I didn’t fry anything this time around! I loved the airiness of the Fool dish, and the pretty bright colors I saw in all the recipes I was browsing. Of course you would think with a name like Fool, that this would be a fool-proof recipe, but in my quest for simplifying the recipe, and not paying too much attention to measurements I ended up with too much cream, and a bit too tart compote.

Instead of sharing how I made it, because I’m going to tweak around with it some more, I’m just going to send you to the recipe on Epicurious.

I cut out all the extras in mine and just made a simple rhubarb and sugar compote, then added a little sugar to the whipping cream. For us the flavors just didn’t combine quite right. So we’ll be trying it again but with a little more extras. I’m really excited for peach season now because I think that is going to be divine.

One little boy really loved my version – he thought for sure it was ice cream!

Enjoy the party!

  1. Good Afternoon Adelina, I really love fruit fools, especially in the summer time and I really like the addition of rhubarb, because it cuts through the sweetness. Your son looks like he is really enjoying his pudding.
    I have poped over to visit you from Miz Helen's Country Kitchen and I have enjoyed my visit, so I have become a new follower with Google +
    I look forward to reading about all your other recipes, especially Berliner Pfannkuchen Fail…. that looks interesting.
    Best Wishes

  2. I adore rhubarb and every way that you can serve it! This looks fabulous, and I can see how it would "fool" a little boy into thinking it is ice cream!

  3. Hi Adelina,
    Your precious little boy sold me on this recipe! I would love your Rhubarb Fool it looks delicious. It is fun cooking on tour with you as we enjoy the Food of The World. Hope you are having a great weekend!
    Miz Helen
