Method

 
Coeur à la créme
Mix the cream cheese and cream. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peak stage. Fold into the cream mixture. Taste, and add a pinch of sugar or drop of lemon juice if desired.

Pour the mixture into cheese cloth-lined coeur à la crème moulds (or individual, perforated foil moulds) and refrigerate for at least twelve hour.

Sorbet:

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil, and allow to reduce until slightly syrupy. Refrigerate until well chilled. Freeze using an ice-cream churner (or place in the freezer and beat every half hour / hour, to prevent ice-crystals from forming).

Unmold the crèmes. If using square foil moulds like I did, cut the crèmes into heart shapes using a cookie cutter.Make red wine sorbet quenelles using two teaspoons, and place it alongside the creamy cheese hearts.

Serve with a sprig of fresh mint, lemon balm or pineapple sage, and enjoy!
