I’ve finally made the half way mark. Funny thing is I am actually quite enjoying this whole Royal Selangor 30-day ‘Get your jelly on’ Challenge and seeing all the “crazy ideas” I have in my head slowly come to life! For this next dessert, I called it Mandarin PC, it is half mandarin jelly and half vanilla cotta. It is a simple but significant dessert for me, because it is the dish I made for the Masterchef auditioning last year.
I just love the pairing of the citrusy mandarin with the sweet vanilla panna cottta. The dessert itself is pretty simple to make, with the angled split of two jellies makes it more fun and impressive. All you have to do is pretty much let the first layer of jelly set in the mould on an angle by leaning it inside a ramekin or a bowl. If you want a little fancier, always can add some whole mandarin segments into the jelly so you can something to chew on. Then once it is set, you can let the mould sit back upright before pouring the next mixture in to the brim.
I still remember I served this panna cotta with a sable made out of Weetbix! George and Gary loved it, I guess my crazy idea has paid off!
Anyway, let’s see whether it will jiggle this time?
And make sure you come back each day for a new tit-illating video! Seriously, there are some really good ones that you simply can’t take your eyes off!
