In 1977, my parents met in ESL class soon after immigrating to America. Though I normally fuse the flavors of their countries’ desserts to my American palette (like orange blossom water and azuki beans,) this year I feel the need pay tribute to the red, white and blue with a simple, sweet treat: Berry Fool. Fresh berries, berry sauce and thick cream are all you need. Sometimes I get naughty and fold in some mascarpone to the whipped cream for extra body. No need to get fancy, so use the absolute best ingredients you can find.
