  1. Great recipe. Is double cream always used in Panna Cotta? I've had some that seemed extremely thin and a bit disappointing. I love a dessert with a bit of substance as well as a refreshing taste.

    1. I always use double cream but you can cheat and used skimmed milk although its creamier with full cream milk.

  4. I think panacotta is very under rated. I would serve this delicious recipe with a tuille biscuit or shortbread.
