Yum. Sweet Panna Cotta using rose water. This recipe does not get much more simple than this. The recipe comes from The Seasons resort.

I cannot give any stars to a dish that is inedible! Rose water - $6, vanilla bean paste - $11, what can be bad? It set up beautifully, plated with strawberries coulis, looked gorgeous,and my guests could not eat it. No one could get past the heavy taste of rose water, so amidst much hilarity, we scooped it off the plates and ate the strawberries with vanilla ice cream. What a disappointment! Still looking for the perfect recipe. I will try it without the rose water.

Very nice jellied yogurt, if not exactly a panna cotta (Italian for cooked cream). I doubled the sugar and rose water after tasting.

I can but marvel that something so simple and easy to make is so delicious; and how refreshing to come across a recipe that uses Greek yoghurt - and rose water! :) I have never used vanilla paste but intend seeking this out. I used in its place vanilla essence but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I made this in a Tupperware mould. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, Jess! made for PRMR.
