Mark Dodson captures the sunshine of the tropics in his gorgeous mango parfait recipe. The whipped, mousse-like texture of the parfait is both rich and indulgent, while the coconut sorbet makes a refreshing counterpoint. If you don't have an ice cream maker for the sorbet, you could equally serve this with whipped cream or a quality vanilla ice cream.

For the parfait, whip the cream until soft peaks form and return to the fridge. Using a whisk attachment, beat the egg yolks on a high speed with one tablespoon of warm water until they double in size
6 egg yolks
375ml of double cream
Next, heat the sugar to 121˚C and slowly pour down the edge of the mixing bowl to combine with the yolks while mixing. Once the sugar, yolk mix has cooled, add the mango purée until combined. Fold in the cream, place in the moulds and set in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours
100g of caster sugar
250ml of mango purée
While the parfaits are setting, whisk the sugar syrup and coconut milk together, strain and churn in an ice cream maker until you reach the desired consistency. Freeze to set
425ml of sugar syrup
400ml of coconut milk
Serve up each parfait with a quenelle of the coconut sorbet - you can also serve with a small dice of tropical seasonal fruit, extra mango purée and some toasted coconut to really top the dish off
