Iced apple strudel pieces on a black plate with honey dates and a golden spoon

Iced apple strudel with honeyed dates

20—30 Min

The crowning glory of our Christmas menu and a refined take on an Austrian classic: iced apple strudel. Instead of baking straight away, the filling is frozen before being wrapped in the filo pastry and then placed in the oven. The dish is rounded off with honeyed dates, pecan nuts and finely chopped pistachios.
