  1. Step 1

    Grease a 6-cup (1.5L) loaf pan and line with plastic wrap or lightly grease a silicone bundt pan. Use an electric mixer to whisk the cream and condensed milk in a large bowl until firm peaks form. Gently fold in the fruit salad, chopped mango and grapes or cherries. Spoon into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight to set.

    Turn onto a serving platter. Decorate with coconut flakes and sliced mango. Cut into slices to serve.

Adele Mowlai

Adele takes pride in sharing her family’s multicultural background at Christmas through an array of dishes that pay respect to their heritage. With Adele being from the Philippines and her husband from Iran, Persian chicken is just one of the delicious dishes she serves at Christmas. “Guests go ‘Wow!’ when I bring it to the table,” Adele says. “It looks festive and the aroma is unbelievable, taking me back to the bustle of the Grand Bazaar in Tehran all over again.” Adele hopes her Christmas recipes, including trio of dips, jewelled rice, shirazi salad and tropical fruit salad semifreddo, will encourage Aussie cooks to experiment with new cuisines. “If you’d like to discover Persian food, my baked chicken roast is a great place to start,” she says.
