Perfect ending to any meal, although not for the faint-hearted but I think you’ll find even they will be persuaded to try this. The nougat is an expensive addition. You can, of course, add anything you like, but I love the contrast of all that softness surrounding the crunch of the nougat.

(Serves 8)
