    1 cup kiwi, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch cubes

    1 cup figs, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch cubes

    1 cup grapes, sliced in half

    1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced in half

    1 cup fresh raspberries

    2 egg yolks

    1/3 cup granulated sugar

    1 cup Champagne

 

  Heat broiler to its highest setting.

  Divide the cut fruits into 4 soup plates, arranging them

 decoratively. Make sauce by combining egg yolks and sugar in

 a mixing bowl. Whisk briskly until the yolks begin to turn a

 light lemony color. Add the Champagne a little bit at a time,

 whisking constantly until well blended.

 

  Place the mixing bowl in a pot or pan and pour about 1 inch

 of water around it. Bring the water to a simmer and continue

 to whisk vigorously until the mixture becomes light and foamy.

 Once the mixture starts to thicken, remove the bowl from the

 heat. Do not overcook. Continue to whisk for 10 seconds.

 

  Pour equal amounts of sauce over each fruit salad. Place the

 plates under the broiler about 3 inches from the source of

 heat and allow them to cook just until they are lightly

 browned on the surface, rotating as needed.

  Serve immediately with remaining Champagne to accompany.
