THE GROUNDBREAKING DESSERT

Once the sole preserve of Michelin-star chefs and experimental food artists like Bompas & Parr, these spherified desserts from M&S deliver a touch of mad science to your kitchen

Hiding in an unassuming little box at M&S you’ll find a world first: spherification on a supermarket shelf. The process turns liquids into semi-solid spheres that explode in the mouth with an intense burst of flavour: welcome to the world, British Raspberry and Vanilla Rose Dessert. This beguiling summery specimen is not just a glitter-flecked wonder that catches the eye: it’s a triumph of food design. Flavour-wise, for those of a sweet disposition, the light-as-air vanilla mousse and the all-butter sponge will certainly hit the spot. Pair that with the tart hit of nostalgia-rich raspberry that bursts as you dip your spoon in and it ticks plenty of boxes in tongue sensations. Go and find the treasure!
