Plate Inspiration

Here is a recent collaboration with beautiful ceramics from Dasa’s Pottery.

The good thing about hand-made dishes is that they are not like blank canvas, but they already have a story, so you need to keep with it when you fill them up. These were great, as I usually start thinking about the dish when I already have a recipe.

This time the dishes were the source of inspiration, each one found their perfect meal spring meal: Terracota clay with soft blue glaze found place for grilled mushrooms with wild garlic and pancetta, colourful first leaves salad just fit in big beige bowl and milk panna cotta with honey and bee pollen.

    • Here you go. I prefer agar agar instead of gelatine, as it gives firmer and clump free results.

      ¾ cup whipping cream
      ½ cup milk
      ½ tsp agar agar powder
      2 tbs caster sugar
      2 tbsp honey
      1 tbsp bee pollen
      oil for brushing

      Pour the cream and milk in saucepan, add agar agar and whisk to combine. Leave for 15 minutes. Lightly brush 2 panna cotta moulds with a oil.
      Add the sugar to the mixture and place over medium heat and gently bring to a boil. Simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine mesh sieve before pouring into the pregreased moulds. Allow to cool to room temperature before refrigerating for 2-3 hours. Unmould carefully, pour over honey (mix it with a little water to make it more runny) and sprinkle with bee pollen.

  1. You are so lucky to work with such an outstanding company. Their clay hand-made dishes are just perfect, with a story hiding in it already, but you got the story essence and turn it into great images…
