For the rice pudding

500ml milk

135g sugar

180g short grain rice

1pc stick vanilla

12pc egg yolk

250g lightly whipped cream

For the basil anglaise

100g basil leaves

500ml milk

6 egg yolks

150g sugar

For the raspberry jelly

300ml raspberry puree

200ml water

100g sugar

5pc x 1g gelatin leaves


1 To make rice pudding, put milk, cream and 90g sugar in a saucepan. Bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer. Add rice and vanilla and barely simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once cooked, cool to room temperature.

2 Whisk egg yolk and 45g sugar in metal bowl over simmering water bath, until light, thick and fluffy (sabayon consistency). Fold through rice and then fold in whipped cream. Set in small moulds, bowls, ramekins, pvc piping – whatever mould you desire. Allow 1 day in the fridge to set.

3 To make basil anglaise, blanch basil by placing into hot water then immediately into an ice water bath. Squeeze water out with hands and then place into liquidiser. Heat milk until warm. Whisk sugar and egg yolks until pale and fluffy. Slowly pour milk onto sugar and eggs then pour into new saucepan. Slowly cook on low heat until sauce coats back of a spoon. Allow to cool to room temperature, and pour onto basil. Blend until bright green. Strain, cool quickly in fridge.  

4 To make raspberry jelly, soak gelatin leaves in ice water. Heat raspberry puree, water and sugar until just boiling. Drop in gelatin, stir until dissolved and pour into desired mould or small ice cube trays.

5 To serve, take rice pudding out of fridge. Turn out or place into bowl. Pour 60ml of basil anglaise around the pudding and cut some small jelly pieces around pudding.
