1. Summer Blackberry Custards
Chef and Le Pain Quotidien founder Alain Coumont makes these ethereal, citrusy custards with wild blackberries gathered from his property. Try them with blueberries, raspberries or pitted cherries, too.
2. Blackberry Fool with Calvados
A classic British dessert of pureed fruit folded into whipped cream, a fool is one of the first things ceramicist Peter Ting learned to make after moving to England in 1976. To give this one a little extra sophistication, he macerates half the blackberries overnight in Calvados, then tops the fruit with dollops of whipped cream he's mixed with blackberry puree.
