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.

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.

Moscato, raspberry and panettone trifles


Wondering what to do with leftover panettone? We've toasted little cubes and layered it in glasses with jelly and mascarpone for a simple trifle. Start this a day ahead to set the jelly.

You'll need

200 gm panettone, cubed 30 gm butter, melted and cooled 30 gm raw sugar 300 gm mascarpone 200 ml pouring cream 70 gm brown sugar 40 ml brandy, plus extra to serve 125 gm raspberries, to serve To serve: icing sugar   Pink moscato jelly 375 ml pink moscato 55 gm (¼ cup) caster sugar Thinly peeled rind and juice of 1 orange 1 vanilla bean split, seeds scraped titanium-strength gelatine leaves, softened in cold water for 3-5 minutes

Method

  • 01
  • For pink moscato jelly, stir moscato, sugar, orange rind and juice, vanilla bean and seeds with 125ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, bring to the boil and remove from heat. Squeeze excess water from gelatine and stir into moscato mixture until dissolved. Strain into a container (discard vanilla bean and rind) and refrigerate until set (overnight). Jelly can be made several days ahead.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Combine panettone, butter and sugar in a bowl and stir to coat well. Toast in the oven on a baking tray lined with baking paper, turning occasionally (6-8 minutes), then set aside to cool.

Spoon mascarpone mixture on top and refrigerate until required (this can be done several hours in advance). Serve trifles scattered with raspberries and dusted with icing sugar.
