Lemon panna cotta – serves 6
600ml double cream
Juice and rind of 1 lemon
2 leaves of gelatine
FOR THE COULIS
200g mixed fruit (I use frozen as it cooks down nicely)
1tbsp water or lemon juice
1. Soak your gelatine leaves in cold water until soft
2. Pour the cream into a pan on a low heat with the sugar and rind of the lemon
3. Add the juice of your lemon (it will suddenly thicken and look like it’s going wrong but bear with it, it will return to a thinner consistency)
4. Squeeze the excess water out of your gelatine then add to the pan and stir until fully dissolved*
5. Pour into serving glasses or ramekins them chill until needed.
6. For the coulis, put all the ingredients together in a pan and gently heat until the fruit is soft and the sugar is dissolved**
*be patient… it will dissolve. Don’t sieve it otherwise you’ll lose the lemon rind and it may not set properly
**can be served hot or cold

I'm Bea, as well as being new to the world of blogging I have been a food teacher in secondary schools for four years. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. I'll be posting all about travel, food I enjoy, whether it's at a restaurant, a recipe I've trialled or something I have knocked up myself. I will also add a few drinks here and there because let's face it, it's got to be done!
I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me.
From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reins on occasion from about the age of 11.
I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I have 3 bottomless pits I call brothers as well as a fiance and they are more than happy to try what I make and be extremely blunt so I welcome all comments : )
I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no matter if it is a weekday after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog.
I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face!
