panna cotta with canadian brie and yogurt strawberry soup with passion fruit juice


  • 4 oz (120 g) Canadian Brie
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup (180 mL) 35 % cream
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) sugar
  • 1 pouch of (1/4 oz/7 g) unflavoured gelatin
  • 1 2/3 cup (410 mL) strawberries
  • 1 cup (250 mL) passion fruit juice
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) water


Remove the rind from the Brie with a hot knife. Heat the Brie and the yogurt in a bain-marie (a heatproof bowl placed over a pan of gently simmering water) for about 5 minutes, stirring to mix with a wooden spoon until creamy.

In a saucepan, heat the cream and the sugar. When it comes to the boil, pour it over the cheese and yogurt. Reheat in the bain-marie if necessary to melt the cheese completely.

Dissolve the gelatin in a little water. Heat for a few seconds in the microwave until completely dissolved. Immediately pour into the pan containing the still-hot cream and cheese mixture.

Pour into small moulds or ramekins. Place in the refrigerator and leave to chill for 2 to 3 hours.

Hull and quarter the strawberries. Bring the passion fruit juice to the boil.

Meanwhile, mix the cornstarch with a little cold water, pour into the juice and stir well. Pour into a container and let it cool. Once the juice is cold, add the strawberries.

Turn out a panna cotta into the middle of each plate and pour the strawberry soup around it.
