Syllabubs are actually very old British desserts that date all the way back to the Tudors. Traditionally, they were a mix of cream and wine, thought to be showstoppers when served at fancy parties. I have modernized my version with vanilla, and have used a little yogurt to keep it really light. The sweet honey and refreshing lemon get the mouth watering, while the vivid green pistachios provide just the right amount of colour and crunch – definitely still a dessert to be noticed!
