Although a little tricky, the video shows you how to make the perfect sabayon sauce to enhance the strawberries or other berry fruits in this simple but sophisticated dish. Sabayon is just egg yolks, wine and sugar whisked together and set over gentle heat from a steaming pan (Bain Marie).

As well as strawberries, the sabayon sauce works well with other fruits such as raspberries or even roasted apples.
