I had a bunch of leftover basil and a couple of passion fruits and I didn’t know what to do with them, so I thought about creating an infused panna cotta – which is essentially a blank canvas of a dessert (sorry panna cotta – you are literally ‘vanilla’). The result? It was super easy to create (and eat), and a fun exercise for flavour/sauce pairings. How about cardamom and vanilla? Chocolate and chilli? Raspberry and salted caramel? Earl grey and lemon?
I’m sort of into gluten and dairy free right now, so my next challenge will be to create a dairy free panna cotta. Any suggestions?
