Grapefruit Parfait au Chocolat RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.


150 g (good 5 oz) white chocolate
6 egg yolks
100 g (3½ oz) sugar
1 dl (½ cup) freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
5 dl (2½ cups) whipping cream

  • Very finely chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.
  • Beat egg yolks and sugar fluffy in a bowl. It takes about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the grapefruit juice into a small saucepan and warm it up.
  • Slowly pour the grapefruit juice into the egg mixture while beating.
  • Pour it all back into the saucepan and heat while stirring until it thickens. Make sure it does not boil.
  • Pour the warm mixture through a sieve straight into the bowl with the chocolate and stir until everything is smooth and the chocolate has melted.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Beat the cream to a light foam.
  • Gently fold the cream into the mixture and pour it all into a dish suitable for the freezer.
  • Freeze for 4 - 5 hours before serving.

Serves 8
