Thank god nobody saw me trying this recipe for the first time. I don’t own a gas burner and my oven was so crap that the oven caramelizing technique didn’t work either. So there I was, burning all my fingers while trying to caramelize the panna cotta with a pocket lighter. 


  • 750ml cream
  • 4 leaves gelatin
  • 1 thick spring rosemary
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • brown sugar [for the crust]
