Since, he's worked as a cheesemonger in New York City and a paella instructor in Barcelona. He now lives in Berlin, Germany where he's most likely to be found eating shawarma.

Yes Antonia, here's the recipe: Sauternes Sabayon - 3 large egg yolks, 1/2 cup Sauternes, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 1/2 cup heavy cream whipped to medium peaks and chilled. (optional). If you are serving the sabayon warm, make it at the last minute. To make it ahead and serve chilled, have an ice bath ready.
Fill a medium saucepan with two inches of water and bring to a simmer. In a medium copper of stainless-steel bowl whisk the egg yolks, sauternes and sugar. Place the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water and whisk constantly until the mixture is tripled in volume and registers 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 3 to 5 minutes, Remove from heat. If serving chilled with whipped cream, place bowl into an ice bath and into the fridge to chill. When chilled, gently fold the whipped cream into the sabayon. Note: I used a 375ml bottle of 2015 Haut Charmes Sauternes, not overly sweet and well priced ($12.). You can poach pears with the extra sauternes and make meringues with the leftover egg whites!

This February was the peak of an amazing citrus season (in California), so my favorite recipe I made was tangerine sorbet topped with a Sauternes sabayon!
Sweet, tart, and creamy all in one spoonful! Ethereal!

Janice, that sounds absolutely divine. I too have been enjoying the wonderful citrus this year. Would you be so kind as to share your recipe for the Sauternes sabayon? The combination of Sauternes plus citrus seems altogether perfect! ;o)
