Combine cream, milk and maple syrup in a pot. Place pot over a medium heat, enough to warm mixture and melt gelatine. Once warmed, remove from heat and cool over an ice bath. Once cooled, pour into dariole moulds. Set in fridge for two hours. FOR THE MAPLE & HONEY MERINGUE: • 1 egg white • 75g honey • 25g maple syrup Put egg white into mixing bowl (do not start mixing until completing next step). Add honey and maple syrup to a pot. Place over a medium – high heat and leave to boil. Once boiled, remove from heat. Start whipping egg whites (on high speed) until soft peaks form. Once meringue is at soft peak stage, slowly pour honey and maple syrup mixture into the mixing bowl. Continue to mix while pouring. Check bottom of mixing bowl, once mixture is cold and glossy, stop mixing (approx. five minutes). TO SERVE: Spread the maple and honey meringue onto the plate. Place the panna cotta on top. Cut irregular shapes of honey dew, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries and place neatly around plate. This can also be served with strawberry sorbet.

NEW WORLD VICTORIA PARK SHOPPER WINS TRIP TO BALI Shelly Reilly lives on the Te Atatu Peninsula, but regularly shops at the Victoria Park New World because she loves the broad selection the store has to offer. She was the lucky winner of the national on-pack promotion St. Ives ran recently in conjunction with the release of the movie Eat Pray Love, which starred Julia Roberts. Entry was by means of registering a unique code found on the reverse of special onpack stickers. There were daily movie ticket prizes during the course of the promotion to see the feature movie. At the end of the promotion a draw was made to select the winner for the main prize which was a trip for two to Bali, courtesy of Garuda Indonesia and Garuda Orient Holidays, plus 30 runner up prizes of pamper packs. As part of Shelly’s prize she will be flying business class to Bali and enjoying luxury accommodation, staying four nights at the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua, followed by a further two nights at Pan Pacific Nirwana in Tabanan.
