Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. 200 ml cream
  2. 2 sheets or 1 tsp gelatin
  3. 30 grams White chocolate
  4. Pinch of cinnamon
  5. Pinch of dry ginger powder
  6. Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  7. Seeds of 1 large pomegranate (1 1/2 cups)
  8. 1 tsp lime juice
  9. 1/4 cup caster sugat
  10. 1/4 cup water
  11. 80 grams dark chocolate
  12. 1 tbsp cocoa nibs


  1. Take a bowl of water and soak gelatin sheets in it. If using gelatin powder, add it to 1 tbsp water and set it aside
  2. Heat cream on a low heat until it's just below boiling point. Add white chocolate and spices and stir until the chocolate melts
  3. Take the cream off heat. Squeeze gelatin sheets to remove excess water and add to cream (or add powdered gelatin with water)
  4. Stir until gelatin is fully dissolved. Pour into three ramekins, cool and put in fridge for 1-2 hours to set
  5. Keep a handful of pomegranate seeds aside and put the rest in a blender. Blitz to crush the seeds and pass through a fine sieve to get pomegranate juice
  6. Put the juice in a pan with lime juice, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until reduced to half
  7. For chocolate soil, finely chop the dark chocolate
  8. Combine water and sugar in a heavy duty saucepan. Bring to a boil, then let the sugar cook until you start to see caramel color on edge of the pan
  9. Turn off the heat and add chocolate. Keep stirring. The chocolate will first melt and eventually turn into crystallised chocolate.
  10. Spread on a baking tray to cool completely and add cocoa nibs
  11. To serve, invert your set panacotta on a plate. Pour pomegranate syrup on top, add 1-2 tbsp of chocolate soil on a the side and sprinkle reserved pomegranate seeds to finish.
