Rhubarb Panna Cotta:

Bring milk, cream, purée, amaretto, vanilla and sugar to a gentle simmer while you bloom the gelatine in cold water. Then mix and add grenadine and set on a lined tray.


White Chocolate Sorbet:

Bring milk, water, sugar, vanilla and sorbitol gently up to 82 degrees c. Then pour 1/2 mix over chocolate and whisk hard until emulsified, then add the rest, mix again. Allow to cool slightly then churn in ice cream machine.


Tempered Chocolate:

Melt chocolate to 45*c stirring with a spatula, then cool to 28*c. Blitz raspberries into a powder. Reward chocolate to 34*c then gently marble with powdered raspberry. Smear over acetate and put into freezer.


Poached Rhubarb:

Peel and slice rhubarb into batons, boil 200ml of water, 150g sugar, two cardamom pods, 20ml grenadine and one star anise pod for four minutes on a rolling boil. Pour straight over rhubarb and place straight into a fridge or blast chiller until cold.


Burnt Butter:

Take a full block of butter and cook in a pan on a medium heat until nicely browned. Place the malt and icing sugar into a blender, slowly pour in a little butter and add until it forms a snow. Place the rest into the freezer for shaving later.


Rhubarb Purée:

Place all ingredients into a pan, cook to a boil, stir well and boil for four minutes, blitz and pass through a chinois. Refrigerate until set then re-blend and pass again to form purée.

Garnish with Nurtured lemon balm.
