Our Girls are Sweet on Pepper

Our Year 10 Food class have been creating Burnt Honey and Orange Pannacotta with Strawberry and Black Pepper Syrup. The girls are taking part in the McCormick’s Flavour Forecast, which is a national competition for students in Years 9 and 10.  We made this recipe hoping to give the girls some inspiration, as one of the categories they can choose to create a recipe for is “Sweet on Pepper”. We think they look amazing! Well done girls. Burnt Honey, Orange and Yoghurt Panna Cotta with Black Pepper Strawberries
