The Barossa Farmer’s Market had humble beginnings of about 10 weekly stalls in a local carpark, almost nine years ago. We then progressed into the “Vintner’s Sheds”, corner of Stockwell Road and Nuriootpa Road, Angaston with an average attendance of 20-30 stalls. The present day finds us with a thriving Breakfast Bar surrounded by an average of 40 stalls jostling for space, and once again overflowing outside. The Barossa Farmers Market is in the unique position of having most of its stalls set up permanently inside. This enables the producer to create a more interesting consistent display. You will find the Market bursting at the seams with up to 60 stalls during peak stone fruit season and special local events. We are open bright and early surrounded by crisp morning air Saturdays at 7.30 a.m. Bustling trade continues until 11.30 a.m. We look forward to seeing you at our special Easter Market – date to be announced. Come in and pick up your Easter goodies of fresh local produce, share in the festivities, meet the producers and get some great hints on how to prepare that perfect dish. So why not see what everyone is talking about!

Autumn Food & Wine Tarkyn warms up his sweet tooth
Recipe courtesy of Bryon Pearson, Barossa Gourmet Confestions
Easter is an exciting time of the year for children waiting for the Easter Bunny to drop off their favourite chocolate eggs, but there are so many to choose from, children might not know where to begin. Lucky Angaston Primary School student, Tarkyn Correll (above) tested some of the eggs available and delivered his verdict on the sweet treats. Tarkyn, 9, said he was looking forward to the Easter egg hunt this year in his new house with a vegetated area. “I have lots of fun but the dog eats them a little bit,” Tarkyn said.
Ingredients: 125g virgin olive oil 1 bay leaf 1 slice diced bacon 125g dark chocolate
50g finely chopped almonds 2 medium onions 2 tspns chopped thyme 1 kg chopped tomatoes
Method: Heat 2 tablespoons of oil, medium heat, sauté onion, bay leaf, thyme and bacon for 8 minutes. Lower heat, add tomatoes and cover, simmer for 15 minutes. Pour in water, simmer and reduce quantity by half. Strain and reserve the sauce.
White chocolate eggs
Heat remaining oil in large pan and fry the prawns until tender. Remove from pan and arrange on serving plates.
Tarkyn Correll ... eggspert taste tester. Creme egg
“I’ve had this before. For a crème egg, this could be bigger. That one’s definitely the best, there’s nothing bad about it; it’s perfect. Maybe the crème is a little bit too strong, but still nice. I couldn’t have too much of it. Now after having the whole thing, I think it could be smaller.”

I think it should be smaller because I can’t eat too much chocolate. I reckon to be Australian, it should be a bilby. The way they’ve textured it is nice. I reckon the chocolate is a bit too rich. I’d probably have to have one bite every hour. “White chocolate is alright, but I prefer other chocolate. It’s nice and it’s got a nice taste of white chocolate but it’s too creamy and milky. I reckon it could be a little bit bigger and they should come in different colours.”

It’s every parent’s dream to be able to sit back, relax and simply supervise while their children create a treat for the tastebuds at dinner time. This is exactly what Mr Mark Prior of Gawler East has to look forward to three times a week when his children Alkira, Brosius and Clifton take over the culinary creations. Alkira, 6, loves to make lemon chicken and said the best way to do it was to squeeze four lemons onto diced chicken and place in a container with the lemon peel, salt and pepper. She said you then refrigerate it for an hour, cook in a frypan or barbecue with the juice and serve with a salad. “The hardest thing for me to learn was how to cut up the chicken, but I do it with Dad’s help,” she said. She has become so good at making the recipe that she made it on Christmas Day for the family. Brosius, 8, has become a spaghetti bolognese master with his family’s recipe. He said you put the pasta into a saucepan with boiling water and cook the mince meat, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and tinned tomatoes for about 10 to 15 minutes until the meat is cooked. The pasta is served with the meat sauce on top, sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Clifton’s speciality is the family’s top secret recipe for chilli con carne, a secret he would not divulge. He also enjoys making pizza, barbecued meat, pasta, and doesn’t mind going with the easy option of twominute noodles and baked beans. Brosius and Clifton, 11, said sausage curry can be difficult to make because the turnips and swedes are hard to cut, but Clifton has mastered the recipe. He has even graduated to making beef in red wine.
The children cook for their dad, their nana, the rest of their family and visitors, who all say the food is delicious. Each child has their night of the week to cook and they also help out with preparation other nights of the week. Dessert is not forgotten with the children making jelly, chocolate crackles and honey crackles to satisfy the sweet tooth after dinner.
Tips for other children
• Make sure the handle on saucepans and pots do not stick out from the stove. • Wear an apron to stay clean. • Be careful not to burn yourself or cut your finger. • Always make sure an adult is supervising. • Clean the table and set it with cutlery, serviettes and cups or glasses. • Clean up as you go.

Hiding veggies One of the major challenges of being a parent is getting your children to eat their vegetables, but it doesn’t need to be so hard. Parents can be creative about the way their children get nutritious vegetables, so they don’t
end up with a plate full of steamed greens at the end of the meal. Angaston mum, Mrs Natasha Field finds it difficult to get her daughters, Charlotte, 5, and Jacinta, 3, to eat vegetables on their own. Mrs Field said her girls do not like the texture of most vegetables so she has to invent ways to make sure they eat them. She said Jacinta will only eat broccoli mashed into something else, and will only eat carrots when they’re cooked. Mashed veggies in meat patties are Mrs Field’s solution to her problem. She includes peas and corn in chicken patties and grated zucchini in omelettes. “I cooked the omelettes for lunch today and my youngest asked if she could eat it tomorrow,” she said. Mrs Field said her battle with cancer has made her more persistent about feeding her daughters vegetables such as broccoli, to keep them healthy. She said parents needed to be creative and come up with ways to make vegetables exciting for their children because a lot of children were fussy eaters.

Autumn Food & Wine Potatoes and Guinness from the Emerald Isle From potatoes to Guinness, Mr Fred Dobbin from Kapunda has had many experiences with Irish food. Mr Dobbin is from Northwest Londonderry, the second largest city in Northern Ireland and grew up on potatoes, Irish stew and more of his mother’s Irish cooking. He said because Ireland relied so heavily on potatoes before the Depression, they have become a staple ingredient in most meals. “When I go back to Ireland, my sister puts about 12 potatoes on my plate and I’m used to only one these days,” he said. He said potatoes are so popular that different parts of Ireland have different names for the vegetable. The Dobbin family would have a Sunday roast with gravy and what Mr Dobbin describes as overcooked vegetables for lunch. The leftover roast would be Monday’s meal and Tuesday would be Irish stew with the leftovers from the previous two days. He said the most popular drink in Ireland is stout and says he still enjoys and occasional glass of Guinness, but turns his nose up when it is chilled. Mr Dobbin said he has heard stories of his grandfather cracking an egg into Guinness for breakfast, but says it is not something he has tried himself. When Mr Dobbin was a teenager he would have pastries for breakfast, with a special treat of diluted orange juice for Sunday breakfasts. He said the average person in Ireland did not drink wine, but had sherry or port at Christmas time. He said there was a huge Irish connection in Kapunda when he moved to Australia in 1969 because Irish and Cornish miners came to the town to work. There used to be about 15 pubs in the town, which would cater to the thirst of the Irish population. When asked about the tradition of green food and drink on St. Patrick’s Day, Mr Dobbin said it was nonsense. “I’ve never had a green Guinness in my life.”
Green food for St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Milkshake
Mix 1 cup of cold milk, 2 tbsp of pistachio or mint-flavoured instant pudding and one crushed chocolate sandwich biscuit in a blender until smooth. Serve with extra biscuits for dipping.
Pour beer or wine into a clear glass. Add several drops of green food colouring to the liquid and stir until well mixed.
Green guacamole is a quick and easy appetizer to serve for St. Patrick’s Day. Mashed avocado, cream cheese, lime juice, tomato, onion and garlic are mixed together to create a decadent ‘green’ dip. For extra green, serve the guacamole with spinach tortilla chips.
Pesto Pasta Salad
Mix 7 ozs of pesto with ¼ cup of whipped salad dressing. Add ½ cup of sliced black peppers, 3 tbsp of chopped sun-dried tomatoes and stir until well mixed. Pour 2 pounds (0.9 kg) of cooked pasta into the sauce mixture and stir until the pasta is completely covered.
Make an easy lemon-lime cake by baking a regular cake mix as directed on the box. Allow the cake to cool completely. Mix together 1 cup of hot water and one package of lemon-lime gelatin. Poke several holes into the top of the cake using a toothpick. Carefully pour the lemon-lime gelatin mixture over the top of the cake, allowing the liquid to soak into the cake. Mix a second package of lemon-lime gelatin with non-dairy whipped cream substitute, and frost the cake as usual.

Autumn Food & Wine A Slice of Damon 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the cocktail function! From cocktail weddings to cocktail business networking functions, birthday celebrations and social events, the cocktail function is number one if you are looking for an interactive party pleaser. Cocktail food is such a diversified style of food and known for generating exquisite flavour profiles. Simple marriages of delicate foods can be responsible for strong, robust palate explosions! What I love about cocktail food is the artistry and creative display that can be achieved. In my opinion, patrons should be presented with a beautiful, breathtaking picture on each platter that is offered to them. Performing a strong, frequent flow of this popular style of function, I am becoming a fan of the quirky, fun ideas that can be incorporated. There are many uses for paper cones, Chinese noodle boxes and Asian tasting spoons. The mentioned provide a great way to incorporate an array of food styles and various Tapas into a standing function. So go get creative and social! Impress your guests with a fabulous fun filled cocktail function! Here are a couple of ideas of what you can do with the humble crouton to get you started...
Damon de Ruiter
Grape harvest is well and truly underway now, and I must admit it has been a slightly trying growing season in the lead up to vintage, with unseasonal rain and mild conditions, but the early picks show some lovely promise. Vintage time is a great time in this beautiful region, and as the weather turns from summer to autumn, my mind starts to turn to medium bodied reds and fleshy whites â€“ because once winter arrives, it will be big reds and fortifieds. The signs of autumn â€“ like local town agricultural shows, Vintage Festival, leaves turning colour and the early morning chill â€“ all point me at a set of wines that are well suited to so many food styles and are very complimentary for the seasonal conditions we are currently experiencing. Fleshy white wines, such as Chardonnay, Marsanne, Semillon and Viognier, do very well this time of year around the dinner table and are a treat to serve with mild chicken curries. Whereas Rieslings, with their steely acid spines, make such a great spring and summer drink â€“ a richer and softer white wine will be a real treat this time of year with the right food. You could also have a crack at a seared tuna steak with these styles of wine, smeared with a light cream and chilli sauce. Medium bodied reds are also very welcome companions this time of year. The Barossa is a solid performer in this category, with many examples to pick from. Grenache and Grenache based blends such as Grenache / Shiraz / Mouvedre, plus Tempranillo, Zinfandel and Sangiovese, are all varieties to look out for. A rich palate, without the heavy tannins of many Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignons, make these very matchable with food. It wonâ€™t take much of a drive around to find examples of these sorts of wines, many of which are being made by the young gun rock star winemakers of the Barossa. I have served these with Schulzyâ€™s or Hutton Vale lamb, ragout style. Also, open lamb back strap yiros would be a good partner for these wines. As to the leaves turn colour and the Vintage Parade gets set to roll down the road, spare a thought for all the crews out there, working the long hours of vintage in vineyards and wineries in the Barossa, all striving for the perfect drop. I salute each and every one of you, wish you nothing but the best, and I look forward to us all coming safely out the other side of vintage, with a fistful of scrumptious 2011 wines as proof of our labours. The best of Barossa to you all. Cheers, Stuey B Winemaker, Barossa Valley Estate

Autumn Food & Wine Feeding the troops For our Aussie troops serving overseas, the simple pleasure of eating a decent meal has much more value than just its nutritional worth. “When you’re not fed with decent quality food, you just don’t feel like fighting,” said President of the Tanunda R.S.L., Mr William Smidmore. “Many problems in ration packs will result in a drop in morale because good food has the power to motivate people, as well as nourish the body.” ANZAC Biscuits and Bully Beef are the edible mascots of Australian troops, but the food available to troops serving overseas has been revolutionised over the last hundred years. “During World War I, the Australian troops serving at Gallipoli would eat heavy oat biscuits and bully beef,” said Mr Smidmore. “But bully beef was awful stuff and the oat biscuits were nothing like the glorified Arnott’s version we see on the shelves today.” Today, Australian troops have the option of carrying either specially designed dehydrated food or wet food, depending on where they’re posted around the world. “For desert climates, troops will carry more wet food than dry, because water isn’t an everyday resource which is readily available,” said Mr Smidmore. “Whereas when we were in Malaysia for a survival exercise, we would use dehydrated ration packs because water was an everyday resource.” For many troops, dehydrated foods are the preferred option. “If you’re carrying your pack with sleeping gear, your gun and ammunition, the dehydrated foods are the better option because they’re a lot lighter,” said Mr Smidmore.
Wine consultancy business continues to grow The food available for Australian troops serving overseas today is used to boost morale, whilst providing nutrients and energy to fight. By just adding water, a dehydrated ration turns from a dry mixture to a home-cooked roast chicken or pork meal. “The nourishment is still in the food,” Mr Smidmore said. “Dieticians thoroughly scrutinise the food and ration packs are 100 per cent better than what they were 20, 50 or 100 years ago.” Chocolate also plays an important role in the daily nutrition and morale of an Australian soldier. “Every military organisation in modern history has used chocolate in ration packs,” said Mr Smidmore. “Today, chocolate is being improved for soldiers, so that it doesn’t melt in their packs. “Confectionary detracts certain elements in your body, so you don’t think of hunger, whilst eating chocolate also motivates soldiers.”
Prep time: 15 minutes or less. Ingredients: 1 cup plain flour 1 cup rolled oats 1 cup brown sugar ½ cup coconut 125g butter 2 tablespoons golden syrup 1 tablespoon water ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda Method: 1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar, rolled oats and coconut.
2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the golden syrup and water. 3. Stir the bicarbonate of soda into the liquid mixture. 4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. 5. Place walnut-sized balls of mixture on a greased tray and o bake at 175 C for 15-20 minutes. 6. Biscuits will harden when cool. Recipe Note: For crunchier biscuits, use more golden syrup.

Autumn Food & Wine A match made in
Everyone knows that a partnership between chocolate and ports, fortified wines and some late-harvest wines can be a winning combination. But the relatively new trend of pairing chocolate and table wines has divided winemakers and chocolatiers globally. Some say the intensity of flavours in dark or milk chocolate tends to overpower or weaken the flavours of even the heartiest Barossa Shiraz. Others argue that a successful wine and chocolate pairing can simultaneously enhance the characteristic flavours of the wine and the chocolate, in what could potentially be a mouth-watering taste-sensation. Renowned Tanunda chocolatier, Mr Bryon Pearson of Barossa Gourmet Confections and cellar door supervisor, Mr Paul Gaster of Richmond Grove, Tanunda have teamed up to put the chocolate-wine relationship to the test. At first, Mr Pearson was sceptical about the idea. “I’ve been a bit unsure about this idea from the beginning,” he said. “I’ve been in the wine game my entire life and I couldn’t imagine how the two could match because they both have such overpowering flavours.”
“But I’ve been amazed by the combinations we have been able to come up with.” Mr Gaster, who approached Mr Pearson to supply the chocolate for the tasting experiment, says he looks for contrasting and complementary flavours when pairing chocolate and wine. “An example of complementing flavours can be seen in the pairing of Bryon’s hand-made apricot truffles and a glass of the Padthaway 2005 Chardonnay,” he said. “The stone fruit flavours of the wine work really well with the apricot in the truffle, the buttery character of the Chardonnay enhances the smooth soft texture of the truffle; meanwhile, the truffle isn’t so sweet that it overpowers the wine.” Some of the more interesting chocolate and wine combinations can be achieved by using contrasting flavours. “We have paired a strawberry crème with a Sangiovese, which is an Italian variety normally associated with savoury foods,” Mr Gaster said. “The extreme sweetness of the strawberry crème almost explodes against the dryness of the Sangiovese. It somehow works really well.” Still not convinced? Try pairing an aged, 1995 Barossa Shiraz with one of Mr Pearson’s
Be open-minded when pairing wine with chocolate. spicy chai tea truffles to excite the senses. “The oriental and nutmeg spice in the truffle is an excellent match with the leathery spice of an aged Barossa Shiraz,” Mr Gaster said. Mr Pearson and Mr Gaster will be offering chocolate and wine tasting sessions as a part of this year’s Barossa Vintage Festival celebrations. However, they have a few tips for anyone who would like to try the chocolate-wine combination on a chilly autumn evening. “First and foremost, it’s important to buy good quality chocolate,” said Mr Pearson.
“There are two chocolatiers in the Barossa Valley (myself and Richard Carman from Richocolat at Seppeltsfield) and we can help you chose the best chocolate. “Alternatively, Green & Black’s organic chocolate from the supermarket is suitable.” Mr Gaster’s most important tip is for people to be open-minded. “Don’t be afraid to give it a go,” he said. “Try picking a wine of similar strength in flavour as the chocolate – it’s important to not overpower the wine with the chocolate.”
Barossa Vintage Festival 2011 With your help we will be making wine by stomping grapes the old fashioned way.

Autumn Food & Wine, “The Leader”, March 2, 2011 - 11
Autumn Food & Wine Open a top drop... Creed Wines 2006 Max’s Vineyard Shiraz
Thorn Clarke 2008 Barossa Terroirs Series Malbec
A selected parcel from Max’s Vineyard in the southern Barossa sub region of God’s Hill Road at Lyndoch. Notes of coffee, cedar, red stone fruits, tar, liquorice, spices. Rich and opulent palate showing depth of fruit backed by big tannins, bright acidity adding to the length of palate. The Max’s Vineyard SVS Shiraz will require double decanting as it has started to lay a considerable sediment. Decant up to 4 hours prior to serving to maximise the flavours and style of this wine.
Loads of upfront fruit and rich mouthfeel. Wines from this vintage will have a great deal of aging potential.
Consists of dark and brooding fruits, while the nose has ripe cherries, fruit cake and vanilla from the oak.
The palate is full bodied with rich and voluptuous fruit, also hints of sweet uplifting spices like nutmeg.
On the palate it is smooth with blackberries and pepper, finishing with big balanced tannins.
The flavour is quite concentrated and gives a wonderful viscous, mouth-filling sensation. The fruit and oak taste hangs around to give the wine length and presence.
Ready to drink now or cellar for 3 years.
LiebichWein 2005 The Darkie Shiraz
Crafted to create a seamless wine that is rich, yet soft and sumptuous. The nose displays ripe red plums, cherries and blackberries with subtle undertones of sweet spice and chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, which support the intense fruit driven palate and give the wine great length and intensity. The use of seasoned barrels has added spice and toast as a complex component without being a dominant characteristic. A great all year choice.

“The Darkie” represents one of the finest Barossa Shiraz wines. Its trademark style showcases an enticingly rich fruity nose, well balanced intense ripe flavours, and a lack of any aggressive oak characters. Deep, inky black with red hue. A seductive fruit-driven style with mulberry and plum aromas overlaid with subtle mint chocolate wood tannins. Rich, full bodied with powerful youthful tannins, well balanced with a warm finish and persistent stewed fruit flavours. Drink now to 2018.
Turkey Flat Vineyards 2008 Mourvèdre The Barossa Valley is one of the few areas in Australia that can successfully ripen Mourvèdre. One of the original grapes grown in the Barossa Valley. The wine is deeply coloured, rich in spice, high in alcohol and tannin, gamey when young and full of fruit. The suitability of Mourvèdre to the Barossa’s climate was tested during the 2008 vintage. Its vigorous canopy and late ripening allowed the fruit to withstand the extreme heatwave the Barossa suffered in mid March. Low yields have resulted in a rich and generous wine with length of flavour and a fine, chalky finish. Fine floral bouquet of violets, bay and wood spice. Rich, intense flavours of fresh raspberries and blueberries, with white pepper spice. Cellar up to 15 years.

Autumn Food & Wine Australia’s top chefs show their skill at Henschke’s the cook in their family and together they like matching wine and food. He said the programme founders, Luke Mangan and Lucy Allon are a real inspiration for them. “Luke puts something back into the industry and Henschke are proud to be supporting Australia’s young chefs of the future,” he remarked. Stephen then explained the highlights of the Henschke wines enjoyed on the night. Michael Twohig, Events and Communications Coordinator of Electrolux Appetite for Excellence told “The Leader” the young guys present represented finalists or runners-up and their visit to Henschke was part of their prize by staying overnight at Angaston Mews and seeing Henschke as a working winery and then enjoying the opportunity to taste the wines produced on the site. He added, “The group initially enjoyed an early morning wine tasting with Stephen Henschke and then Prue Henschke took them to various vineyards to show the different grape varieties. “We saw their vineyards and how they are treated by the staff and shown the various procedures involved right to the stage of how the wine gets into the bottle. It was a real eye opener and quite amazing how much emphasis Stephen and Prue place on the actual vine and its treatment. It definitely showed us its their passion. “Henschke Wines are definitely more prestigious. Their flavours are similar from bottle to bottle and every vintage. They are held in high regard and certainly stand out from the rest as a superior quality wine.” Michael said when it comes to wine choice a lot of the young hospitality people present will have quite an influence on what the customer will buy in their restaurant.
German tradition still strong Similar to German yeasted cakes, like Bienenstich and Streuselkuchen, and smoked mettwurst, Lachschinken and bratwurst sausages, Rote Grutze is still a strong tradition in the Barossa Valley. Examples of the traditional German berry pudding can often be seen at the Tanunda Show and during local festivities, like the Barossa Vintage Festival. Rote Grutze convenor for the Tanunda Show, Mr Clarry Falkenberg of Tanunda has been making Rote Grutze his entire life. “My mum used to make it at home when I was growing up, and one day I got a bit bored and decided to make it,” he said. “I try to make a bit every year.” Home-made batches of Rote Grutze have been judged at the Tanunda Show for the last 20 years. “There are quite a few people who still make it in the Valley and there’s a lot of interest in it at the Tanunda Show,” he said. To p a s s o n t h e knowledge of how to make Rote Grutze, the Tanunda Show will be
hosting junior Rote Grutze classes this year. “At the junior Rote Grutze class last year we had five or seven children learn the secrets to making Rote Grutze,” he said. “I think parents enrol them in classes to pass on the German tradition, so that it continues for future generations.” Rote Grutze will be available for tasting at the upcoming Tanunda Show and also at this year’s Barossa Vintage Festival as a part of the Carnival celebrations at Seppeltsfield.

Some of Australia’s top young chefs, waiters and restaurateurs were hosted by Stephen and Prue Henschke at Henschke Wines, Keyneton last Tuesday where they showed their culinary skills and created a delicious meal using top local produce. It was all part of the launch of the 2011 Electrolux Appetite for Excellence Awards, a prestigious national programme founded by chef, Luke Mangan and Lucy Allon seven years ago. Each year the programme looks nationally to find the best young chef, young waiter and young restaurateur. At the Henschke property Prue Henschke showed her own herb and vegetable garden and some of the herbs were later used in the cooking that night. Saskia Beer from Barossa Farm Produce was on hand to supply some of her delicious chicken, pork and smoked meats and also helped out with the cooking. Other local producers used on the night were: Lamb chops and lamb mince from John and Jan Angas, Hutton Vale Lamb; smoked salmon from Jamie the Mt.

White chocolate panna cotta with Jamabro Wines Moscato marinated fruits (serves 6) Moulds are required to set the panna cotta in. Jelly moulds can be used, but for presentation and ease of de-moulding when set, it is best to use moulds with plain sides. Panna cotta Ingredients: 300ml thick cream (48% butterfat) 300ml standard cream 5 tablespoons castor sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 100g white chocolate 3 sheets leaf gelatine Method: Place the creams together with sugar and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Place the chocolate into the mix and turn off the heat, allowing the mix to stand while the chocolate dissolves. Soak the gelatine in a bowl of cold water until soft, around 4-5 minutes. Drain and squeeze out the excess water.
Add the gelatine sheets to the cream and chocolate mixture. Stir well. Pour the mixture through a strainer and cool a little, then pour into moulds. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Marinated fruits Ingredients: 1 bottle of Jamabro Wines 2009 Rough Cut Diamond Moscato Your choice of fruits 1 apple 1 pear 1 banana A few strawberries Method: Cut fruits into 1½cm pieces, place in a bowl and pour
over a cupful of the wine. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate to marinate. Stir occasionally. Once panna cottas are firm to touch (like jelly), de-mould onto your presentation plate. If panna cottas are difficult to turn out, place the mould briefly into hot water to melt the sides a little. Serve with a spoonful of the marinated fruit and pour some of the remaining Moscato from the fruit bowl over the panna cottas.
