Paul cooks up an avocado-inspired dish that will tickle your tastebuds.
Avocado Panna Cotta:
Put milk and peeled chopped avocado into blender and puree till well combined and smooth.
Heat cream, sugar and vanilla – seeds scraped out added to cream along with the pod and bring to the boil.
Take off the heat and add the milk and avocado and gently combine.
You do not want to create air bubbles on the surface.
Put gelatin leaves into cold water and soak for about 7 or so minutes then squeeze out the water and add the leaves to the hot cream mix.
Carefully fold through until they are all dissolved. Pour into moulds or glasses and put in the fridge for 3 hours or until well set.
Cut a small cross on the bottom of each Tamarillo and then put them in a large jug or bowl and pour over boiling water.
Let them soak for a few minutes and then peel (this is the same way to peel raw tomatoes).
Chop the fruit up into small dice and put in a saucepan with the sugar and water and bring to the boil then simmer until you get the consistency you desire. I like to mash the fruit with a fork as it cooks down so that it is pulpy.
The tamarillos are lovely and sweet but also have a bitter bite from the seeds so taste for a good balance of sweet and bitter. I found that 1 tamarillo, 2 tsp of sugar and 2 tsp of water is a good balance to cook them down in but it could change depending on how ripe the fruit is.
Streak some Tamarillo Coulis across the plate then dip the mould into hot water to warm up the panna cotta so it will slip easily out of the mould and place it on the sauce.
Place a little more sauce on top of the panna cotta and garnish with some lime zest.
If serving in a glass just place a tsp or so of the sauce in the middle of the panna cotta and garnish with lime zest.
My chef friend Achim from Kuche Inspirational Foods – www.kuche.com.au – gave me some of his gelatin to use so if you use another brand you may need to adjust the amount used. Also if you are putting the mixture into molds to be turned out later you will need to use about 6 leaves, if you are going to put the mix in a martini glass and serve it in that glass then you will only need 4 leaves. Also gelatin reacts differently in winter than it does in summer so make sure you read the instruction well.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
