Chef Jeremy Shaw of 38R shares his recipe for vanilla panna cotta
November 6th, 2019
Panna cotta is an Italian cream-based dessert thickened by gelatin and shaped into a mold. It's a perfectly refreshing treat in the warm months, or can be served as a light dessert after a meal. Similar creams include crème Anglaise, thickened by egg yolks, and pastry cream, thickened by egg yolks and starch. Because the vanilla plays a crucial role in this dessert, be sure to use the highest-quality vanilla you can find.
Makes 2-3 servings
Bloom the gelatin by soaking in cold milk to soften.
Using a knife, slice the vanilla bean lengthwise. Scrape out the vanilla seeds from the pod. In a medium saucepan, add all of the ingredients including the vanilla bean and seeds.
