A sorbet produced in west Dorset has been recognised in the Great British Food Awards 2019.

Sea Pink Sorbet, produced by Baboo Gelato and Furleigh Estate, received a Highly Commended Award in the new product category after the two companies joined forces earlier this year

Commenting on Sea Pink, judge and food writer Sheila Dillon said: “An elusive, lovely, delicate taste with perfect texture. It is almost not there on your tongue, but it is and you dig in for another spoonful.

“Is it fruit, is it wine, is it perfumed air? Whatever it is, it is lovely. Alcoholic ices are a hard trick and Baboo has pulled one out of the hat.”

Annie Hanbury, founder of Baboo Gelato, suggests serving the Sea Pink Sorbet with summer berries, peaches or melon, or simply on its own with some almond biscotti.

The Sea Pink Sorbet is available from Washingpool Farm and North Perrott Farm Shop in 500ml pots.
