An apology and a recipe

sometimes i underestimate the power of my own voice so i must apologise to the couple who sat down on saturday night, stayed for twenty seconds, then got up and left. maybe the combination of the wedding present in the speakers, myself blaring out the lyrics of kennedy from the pass, and the thought of that for an entire evening was too much. fortunately for us, ben and anne popped in so i was able to sing to them all night and pass on the little present that i had for them. is it true that every cloud has a silver lining or is that just bull?

anyway another menu bites the dust and the pannacotta recipe is finally a success. it didn't take long, just the entire menu, before it came together but it did, so here it is.

you will need (infinite patience)

150 ml mango puree
300 ml coconut milk
50 ml agave nectar
1 sachet vegegel

put all ingredients together in a microwave safe jug and, to ensure good distribution of the gel, blitz with a hand blender then put it away.

place in micro for 2 mins on full power. take out and whisk. back in, 1 min, and whisk. depending on the power of your microwave, this should be enough.

pour in to ramekins, leave for a few hours in the fridge and they should unmould beautifully.

don't use the blender again because this seemed to destroy the gel and result in what we'll be calling on a future menu, a mango and coconut cream.

serve with a salsa made from lime segments, passion fruit, kiwis and sweetened with agave.

happy hair-pulling
