I love a great panna cotta, and I don’t mind saying: this is a great panna cotta. I originally got this idea from a wonderful restaurant in Bali called Sardine, which I frequent whenever I visit the country. Usually on the way from the airport, before even checking in to wherever we are booked. I feel the stress of getting ready to fly drain from me as I breathe in the fragranced slightly damp air and over look the rice paddy, or sunflower field depending on the time of year. It is remarkably refreshing.

Sardine has amazing desserts, and this is my version of something I ate there many years ago. This is not strictly Thai of course, but is evocative of those delicate fragrant Thai flavours we know and love. With a kick in the palate!
