Kaffir lime panna cotta with raspberry puree

This dish was used as part of a 1 night “restaurant” held out of our apartment as part of the Foodbuzz 24,24,24 launch event.

This is similar to the honey yogurt panna cotta I made a few weeks ago, but I swapped the honey out for sugar and the cream was infused with flavour from Kaffir Lime leaves.

Kaffir lime and raspberry as a combo was something that came to me in one of those "aha!" moments that one sometimes gets about food. Cooking fruit changes its flavour, so I always like to use raw purees of fruit whenever possible. In this case I used a pint of raspberries with a bit of sugar to balance out the creamy yogurt-based panna cotta.

The milk, cream and yogurt came from Evans' Farmhouse in Norwich, NY by way of Saxelby Cheesemongers.
