SCOTTISH CRANACHAN WITH GLEN TALLOCH

We are concluding with a dessert. A very traditional dessert, in fact! If the Scots have something to celebrate, you can expect Cranachan to be served at some point. Cranachan is made from the four things that Scotland is known for: whisky, oats, honey and raspberries. Officially, the cream with Glen Talloch, the crispy oat flakes and the fruit are served separately, so everyone can construct their own dessert as they like it. Although there exist countless variations of this recipe, we are sticking with the classic preparation for now.

Preperation

  1. Toast the oats for a few minutes in a dry frying pan. Take 3/4 of the toasted oats and mix with two tablespoons of Glen Talloch in a cup. You should do this at least a few hours (or a whole night) in advance to make sure the oats can fully absorb the Glen Talloch.
  2. Beat the cream until it firms up and fold in the remaining Glen Talloch and the honey.
  3. Put a few raspberries in each glass, put some cream on top, add the oats that have been marinating in Glen Talloch, then more fresh raspberries, some more cream, some regular toasted oats and then one more raspberry on top.
  4. Of course, you should serve this dessert with a cup of strong black coffee and… a glass of Glen Talloch!

Of course, you won’t be slathering these ribs in barbecue sauce. A light marinade is all you need to bring out the natural flavour of the ribs. Whatever you do, make sure to get belly ribs. These are much larger and the meat has a firmer structure, while also being much more flavourful. Don’t forget about the most important thing: the touch of Glen Talloch!

Glen Talloch and chocolate? We are always up for that! Especially for Glen Talloch with chocolate truffles.
