Vanilla Panna Cotta with Strawberry Consomme

Roopa

A panna cotta is basically a thickened cream dessert. Apparently it used to be made with egg whites, but now it is typically made with gelatin. It is chilled rather than baked, so it really just depends on correct combining of ingredients. 

VANILLA PANNA COTTA

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 g gelatin sheet
  • 180 mL homo milk
  • 200 mL whipping cream
  • 65 g granulated sugar
  • Vanilla

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bloom the gelatin in cold water
  2. In a saucepan, combine the rest of the ingredients. Heat them over a low heat to give the flavours more time to infuse.

  4. Let the panna cotta set in the fridge. 
  5. Overturn the panna cotta once it has set.
