|Panna Cotta- I covered the tops with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming|
Unfortunately, I won't make the panna cotta again. Granted, I just made the base recipe and not one of the gelées, because I'd never had panna cotta before and wanted to know what it tasted like without extra stuff on top of it. I'm glad I only made 1/3 of the recipe and even divided that into four servings instead of two, because even I think half a cup of heavy cream per person is just too much! I didn't have any problems with it setting up (it was actually very firm), which was a concern raised on the comments for the recipe on the Food Network page. The comments also suggested not making the panna cotta for people who aren't fans of honey. I like honey, but I thought that the recipe would have been better with sugar instead, because it basically tastes like (and is) gelatinized whipped cream with honey instead of sugar. In the interest of full disclosure, the panna cotta actually made me feel really ill.
In other news, Paul and I had a successful antiquing day yesterday--I'll post some of my finds later this week. Stay tuned!
