    MarieRynr's Note:

    For a more casual presentation, you can chill the panna cotta in one large bowl instead of individual ramekins, but it will take longer to set; use a serving spoon or an ice-cream scoop to serve it with the compote. Cook time is time required for the panna cotta to set.

      I tried this last weekend and tested it out on my family. They all thought it was excellent. The rhubarb and cherries perfectly balanced each other in the compote and went very well with the smooth creaminess of the panna cotta. It also looked lovely on the plates. I garnished each with some sprigs of mint, not for flavour so much as for colour. Beautifully presented dish and one I will probably make again, maybe using some different fruits when in season. Thanks!
