If you want a no fuss, simple, prepared in advance dessert – this is the one for you.  The tartness and colour of the compote contrasts the delicately sweet panna cotta beautifully.  If you don’t like rhubarb, or it’s out of season, simmering some fresh or frozen raspberries or strawberries in a splash of balsamic…
