In Lieu of Cake
Lemon panna cotta from Enoteca. Perfectly sweet, perfectly lemony, and oh so perfectly smooth. Happy Birthday to me! I'm not alone in my obsession with this dessert, and am also not the only one who its inspired to try making it at home. But, alas, in each of our efforts the perfection of this particular panna cotta has eluded us. When I was picking this up today I tried to kind of casually inquire about what's in it, and to my surprise the counter guy just pulled out a piece of paper that had all the ingredients listed and showed it to me (!). I guess it's not quite the guarded information I thought it might be. Of course without the exact amounts and specific directions I'm still largely in the dark, but this is a very good start. More recipe attempts will commence following the completion of my resolutions (which, yes, I broke today with the panna cotta, and I must admit I've actually broken each resolution exactly one time already, but hey, I'm doing pretty good overall and I'm already almost halfway through. Small type=sheepish.).
