Very yummy, we love panna cotta, wonderful source of calcium and very versatile in "dressing" the custard. I used lactose free heavy cream (so Little Miss (DD) could also eat it) but then kept to the recipe. Made this for hubby's birthday with an variety of other deserts. Everyone wanted to try the panna cotta. I topped it with chocolate flakes and strawberries and kiwi berries. Thanks for posting your recipe weekend cooker
