Ingredients

Panna Cotta:
  • 2 teaspoons/10 ml gelatin powder or 4 sheets of 2 g soaked in cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups/375 ml milk
  • 1 1/2 cups/375 ml of 35-percent cream
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped and pod
  • Zest of Meyer lemon zest, cut into thick strips
  • 1/2 cup/125 ml of honey
  • Meyer lemon wedges, for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons/30 ml of butter
  • Juice from 1 Meyer lemon
  • 3 tablespoons/45 ml 35-percent cream
Garnish:

Directions

For the panna cotta: dissolve the gelatin powder in 1/4 cup/60 ml of cold water. Let it rest for 3 minutes. 

Put the milk and cream in a saucepan. Add the vanilla seeds and pod, lemon zest and honey (keep the lemon juice for the caramel). Slowly bring to a boil. Add the gelatin and continue cooking until it's completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let zests infuse for 5 minutes. 

Strain through a fine sieve and divide into 4 glasses. Put it in the refrigerator and let sit for at least 4 hours. 

For the caramel: Heat the powdered sugar in a saucepan on low heat until it melts and turns into a golden color, about 5 minutes. Add in butter, lemon juice, and cream. Turn off the heat, and let it sit for 2 minutes. 

For serving: Serve the panna cotta with the lemon caramel sauce and supreme of Meyer lemon to garnish.
