Chicken Farm Baker' Project # 10: Plated dessert - art & sense: Aromatic Panna cotta with Fresh Fruit Sauce


Chicken Farm Baker' Project # 10 is "Plated dessert - art & sense". Well, it's not common for me to do anything like this, most of my work are easy home bake, haha.
But it's a good time to try something new (and it's the main reason for our group, we need creativity and try something new), and if we never make it before it's GREAT.

So, this time I make "Aromatic Pannacotta with Fresh Fruit Sauce", even I made the panna cotta before but this recipe is different. The additional ingredients make the dessert fill with great fragrance when combine with the fresh fruit sauce, the flavor is both sensation and refresh.

And the main theme for this project is plate decoration, so I decided to create the art work form the sauce, but it will be more delicious when you serve it with more sauce (the raspberry sauce is delicious, I love it, ^ ^).

  1. Hi Pook,
    This is beautiful!

    Look easy to make but can you explain to me what does it mean by
    "Bloom the gelatin for 3-5 minutes"?
    From the picture there, it look like gelatin in sheet form. Just soak into water? room temp water?
    sorry for asking this stupid question as i never use gelatin in sheet form before.
    Hope to hear from you soon

  2. Yes, blooming gelatin means soaking the gelatin in the room temperature water. So, when you put the soften gelatin sheet in the hot water, it'll melt.

  3. Wow, this looks sublime! Very beautiful. I am on a panna cotta trip at the moment. I had a few bad ones, and then had a fantastic one at River Cottage. After two attempts I made Gordon Ramsay's Jasmine Coconut and Honey panna cotta with papaya ginger compote.
    I like the coffee bean idea and cinnamon. Looking forward to trying this (I love coffee flavour in desserts).

  4. I also found watching the heat, as in not boiling made for a creamier panna cotta. I have heard Niahm of Eat Like Girl fame use the words just a shiver.
    I used heat but not too much 5 mins (as was instructed by Gordon’s recipe).

  5. Can I replace rasberry with another kind of fruit ?

  6. Strawberry or any kinds of fruits with a bit of tangy taste will do.

  7. regarding cinnamon stick, can I use cinnamon powder instead (because the shops that I know don't have stick) ? If yes, could you tell me how much powder I should use ?
