Delicious! Added Cointreau and creme fraiche to the mascarpone, with a dash of icing sugar and grated orange zest. Amazing!

This was absoloutely delicious! Only reason I haven't given this 5 stars is because it takes considerably longer than the recipe states. I cooked it for 40 minutes under foil in the oven, then for another 10 without the foil on. I then removed it from the oven and strained the sauce into a pan and considerably reduced it. The end result was delicious though and I love it with the mascarpone so it is worth the effort!

Very good recipe though I found it took longer to cook.

Lovely way to cook rhubarb and the dish looks very pretty, with pink rhubarb, strands of zest and the exotic star anise. Didn't use wine, squeezed over the juice of the orange instead.

I rarely drink rose, can someone suggest a nice substitute?

Thanks for your question. You could substitute with a white wine that is light and on the sweeter side rather than dry.
