rhubarb panna cotta

This creamy dessert’s gelatinous texture is similar to a firm custard and can be sliced to serve. Alternatively, decorative moulds can be used to create unique presentations. Note: The dessert needs to be refrigerated overnight to set. The heady Frangelico rises across the palate and is finished by the velvety, foamy texture of the mousse and a flash of banana.

3 cups half and half cream

2 vanilla pods, split, seeds removed
