Six sexy panna cottas

We say si to these six takes on the Italian classic. From coffee and caramel to red wine and figs, panna cotta proves to be a versatile dessert to suit all palettes.

Okonomiyaki with sticky soy pork belly

Persian red lentil soup with tahini, beetroot and fried mint

Lentil soup may not sound like the sexiest of dishes, but rest assured, it's a heart-warmer. We've added warming spices and served the soup with a dollop of garlicky tahini. Thin slivers of shaved raw beetroot add earthiness and texture - the beetroot is also excellent simply grated and served piled on top. The poached egg is optional, but highly recommended.

You'll need

185 gm dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids; see note), coarsely chopped 185 gm butter, coarsely chopped 4 eggs 4 egg yolks 90 gm caster sugar 150 gm (1 cup) plain flour 25 gm Dutch-process cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting   White chocolate ice-cream 500 ml (2 cups) milk 3 tsp liquid glucose 6 egg yolks 100 gm caster sugar 250 gm white chocolate, coarsely chopped 100 ml vegetable oil 500 ml (2 cups) pouring cream

Method

  • 01
  • For white chocolate ice-cream, bring milk and liquid glucose to just below the boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale (2-3 minutes). While whisking, add milk mixture in a thin steady stream, then return to pan and stir continuously over medium heat until mixture thickly coats a spoon (6-8 minutes). Melt chocolate in a bowl placed over a saucepan of barely simmering water and stir occasionally until smooth. Add oil in a thin steady stream, stirring to combine, then add to custard. Add cream, strain through a fine sieve and refrigerate until cold. Churn in an ice-cream machine, then freeze until required. Makes 1 litre.
  • 02
  • Melt chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (3-4 minutes), then stir gently until smooth. Whisk eggs, yolks and sugar in an electric mixer until pale and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Fold chocolate into egg mixture, sieve flour and cocoa in and fold to combine. Spoon into 8 buttered and floured 200ml ramekins or dariole moulds, filling to three-quarters, smooth tops and refrigerate to set (2 hours).
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Bake moelleux until just set and soft in the centre (8-10 minutes; a skewer should come out wet). Turn out of moulds, dust with extra cocoa and serve hot with white chocolate ice-cream.

Note Must's team uses Valrhona Guanaja and Valhrona cocoa; they're available from select delicatessens and grocers.
