Many Moons ago I worked at a hotel where the chef at the time was pretty adventurous for the kind of establishment it was. He would make some amazing dishes and I luckily got to taste test many of them. The Panna Cotta he made was so delicious - I had never tried it before and remember thinking it tasted like ice cream without being frozen. It had that creamy texture, it really was so good. So for todays post, I decided to give this little desert a go and this is my attempt. Personally I think his was better, it just seemed creamier so next time I might change the milk and cream ratio to more cream.
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
2 tablespoons boiling water
2 teaspoons gelatine
Place the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla into a saucepan. On a medium temperature, heat until the sugar has dissolves.
In a separate bowl place the boiling water into a separate bowl with the gelatine and stir until dissolved. Pour this into the cream mixture and stir through. Pour into 6 greased moulds and place on a tray. Place this into the fridge until set, approximately 5 hours
