Panna cotta with ginger and poached rhubarb recipe


  1. Soak five leaves of gelatin by following the manufacturers instructions.
  2. Heat the milk and vanilla extract and add cream in a small pan until just boiling. Add 100g (4oz) caster sugar.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the gelatin. Leave to cool a little before adding the ginger-flavoured yogurt, and stir well.
  4. Pour into ramekins, cover and set in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.
  5. Wash and cut a pack of rhubarb stems and place in an ovenproof dish, sprinkle over the remaining caster sugar and just cover with water.
  6. Poach in a pre-heated oven 150°C/300°F/Gas Mark 2 for 10-15 mins.
  7. Leave the rhubarb to cool and the syrup to go sticky and thick. De-mould the panna cottas by dipping them in warm water, invert onto a plate and shake sharply. Finally add the poached rhubarb on the side and drizzle over the rhubarb syrup.
