Jamie says: "If you're having a nice night with mates and there's good wine and some conversation happening then I think this is a lovely thing to bring out a few hours after dinner. It's like a sorbet, but without the work. Fiery chilled grappa, good-quality chocolate and delicious frozen grapes are a great little combo that show you care and you've made a bit of effort. You could either use dark chocolate or a mixture of different flavours, depending on what you fancy."


  • A bottle of chilled grappa
  • 2 or 3 bunches of frozen grapes (Muscat grapes work really well)
  • A few bars of good-quality chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
  • Method1. Put your bottle of grappa and the grapes in the freezer about 2 to 3 hours before you want to serve them. Right before serving, give your bars of chocolate a good whack against the counter to break them up into large chunks.2. Pile these chunks in the middle of a nice wooden board, arrange your frozen grapes beside them and serve with a nice little glass of grappa to sip on while you watch the grapes and chocolate disappear. So simple, but such a treat.© Jamie OliverPhotography © David Loftus
