    Manami's Note:

    "At Tru, we make this panna cotta in small demitasse cups - it's that rich and flavorful," says Gale Gand, pastry chef at the Chicago restaurant. "Bitter chocolate,and chocolate, sweet salty caramel and crunchy fleur de sel {sea salt} set against the smooth, tangy cream." ;) Chill time - 2 hrs, Midwestern Living, 02/02/09.

      I used heavy cream and espresso beans and loved the contrast between the panna cotta and the caramel topping. Made for New Kids on the Block.
