Ekka-Inspired Strawberries and Cream Dessert at Stokehouse Q
The South Bank restaurant is serving up a special dessert, and donating part of the proceeds to a good cause.
Strawberry sundae season is in full swing, but no matter how much you love the Ekka's iconic scoops of pink-coloured ice cream, we can't all go to the show to grab one every day that it's on. If you fancy treating yo'self to something similar — and in a fancier setting, too — you can make a date with Stokehouse Q from Friday, August 9 to Sunday, August 18, with the South Bank restaurant serving up its best Ekka-inspired creation.
Created by group pastry chef Lauren Eldridge, this strawberries and cream concoction is a serious treat, combining strawberries and cream-flavoured semifreddo with strawberry meringue and fresh strawberry. It's available during the lunch and dinner service for $19, and it's for fans of the red, juicy fruit, clearly.
Making a great deed even better, Stokehouse Q is partnering with The Common Good, aka The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, and donating a portion of the proceeds from the limited-edition dish to this worthy cause. That's something you won't get with your regular sundae — or river views, either.
Plus, if you want to try whipping up the dessert yourself, the recipe is also available on Stokehouse Q's website.
