Blackberries in Opal Nero

Often the most delicious dishes highlight the simple magnificence of fresh, natural goodness.

Earlier this year I combined dark young berries with Opal Nero liqueur and a blob of Chantilly cream. Quick, simple, delectable. Now that the blackberries are in season, you’ll find that the added sweetness and the magic of anise and a hint of lemon from the Opal Nero turns simple berries into a stunner of perfect yumminess. While we’re on the subject of perfect yumminess, I wanted to find you a pretty picture because I didn’t photograph my berry dish. It was in my mouth all too quick. Perhaps if I had this lad in my kitchen whipping up the Chantilly cream things would have been different!
