Strawberries Romanoff

Strawberries Romanoff, a delectable concoction of strawberries macerated in sugar, orange liqueur and fine shreds of orange peel. The strawberries are served with sweetened whipped cream.

This dish, although typically French, has Russian origins. It was named for the royal family of Imperial Russia, at whose court French food was invariably served.

Strawberries Romanoff

1/3 c. + 2 tbsp. sugar 1/3 c. Grand Marnier or Cointreau 1 orange 3/4 c. heavy cream

1. Remove the stems from the strawberries. Rinse well and rain. pat dry with paper towels.

2. Place the strawberries in a bowl and add 1/3 cup of the sugar and the Grand Marnier.

3. Using a swivel-bladed potato peeler, cut around the orange to produce a very thin spiral of peel. Do not cut into the white pulp. Cut the peel into wafer-thin shreds. Add to the strawberries and fold together gently. (Use the orange in another dish.)

4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.

5. Whip the cream and flavor it with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Serve the cream with the strawberries. 8 servings.
