Set buttermilk, strawberry and eucalyptus by Jock Zonfrillo.


  • 2L buttermilk
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 9 leaves gold gelatine
  • sea salt vinegar powder 1kg
  • perfectly ripe sweet strawberries


Place the gelatine leaves in some cold water until soft.
Bring the cream and the caster sugar to the boil, take off and add the gelatine, stir with a rubber spatula until the gelatine has fully dissolved.
Cool down over an iced bain marie. When it reaches body temperature, add the buttermilk and mix well. Set in 1000ml takeaway containers about ¾ full (should make 6 containers).
Leave to set in the fridge for a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 9 hours. Very important. Juice the strawberries, strain through a fine oil filter paper and set aside in the fridge.
