Panna Cotta

Honey panna cotta served with sticky gingerbread, rhubarb purée & sous vide cooked rhubarb.


The rhubarb has been vacuum packed with a little sugar & cooked at 61 degrees for 45 minutes, under vacuum at this temperature the rhubarb keeps it’s structure & does not go mushy as it does when it’s traditionally poached.


The gingerbread is very sticky but overpowering for either the honey in the panna cotta or the rhubarb & gets even better if kept for a couple of days.
