Article Image

When it comes to spring flavor pairings there are few as transcendent as strawberries and rhubarb. That sweet-and-tart yin and yang, there is simply nothing like it. Though rhubarb does work surprisingly well in savory preparations, we still think it’s at its best in these classic strawberry-rhubarb desserts.

    Strawberry-Rhubarb Fool

    A fool is an old-fashioned English dessert, but it never goes out of style because it’s simple, delicious, and beautiful. Plus, any fool can make it since it’s only a matter of folding a quickly cooked compote into whipped cream. A little rose water adds a floral sweetness, but the fool is lovely without it, too.

    Rhubarb Ice Cream Shortcake with Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote

    Rhubarb, with its sweet-tart tang and rosy hue, is the pastry chef’s asparagus—one of the early but certain signs that spring has arrived. Unapologetically astringent in its raw form, rhubarb stewed with sugar becomes a silky pink sauce that makes gorgeous ice cream. Served with thick buttermilk biscuits flavored with cardamom and orange zest and topped with strawberry-rhubarb compote, it takes on new proportions.
