Observations:

How long can I keep the vanilla panna cotta?
You can keep this dessert in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cover the glasses with plastic wrap or place them in a container with a lid.

Can I use a vanilla bean to flavour panna cotta?
Sure. Just cut the vanilla bean in the centre and collect all the seeds with the tip of a knife. Then you will have to mix them in the pan as explained in step 2 of the recipe.

What shapes can I give vanilla panna cotta?
Let’s get creative! We used simple glasses but you can choose the shape you prefer. You can use heart-shaped, flower-shaped, star-shaped moulds (for example)

How to easily unmould a vanilla panna cotta?
If you use a mould and want to serve your panna cotta, we advise you an infallible trick not to spoil the dessert: once the panna cotta has finished resting in the refrigerator, take the mould and immerse it in boiling water (only the part of the container must be wet: not a drop in the panna cotta!). The heat on the walls will allow the cream to come off easily,

How can I decorate vanilla panna cotta?
You can eat this dessert like this or add delicious toppings (but also fresh fruit). On our website you will find different versions: we advise you to taste the panna cotta fig sauce, the panna cotta pistachio, the panna cotta with red berry coulis and the panna cotta raspberry.
