Brown sugar pannacotta…   I’ve been thinking about this a bit lately… when to stop adding parts to a dish… When do you finish? Or how much is too much, and when does it become too confusing? Or when do you just go off on a mad one… - This was the original version of the ‘Brown sugar pannacotta’ It has been refined since this picture. It’s one of my favourite desserts. But it took a while to slim it down… Here it is at the start… - The original version: Brown sugar pannacotta, coffee mascarpone, date purée, Indulgent brownie, white chocolate wafer, meringue, Nutella powder, bitter dark chocolate soil, garden greens - Always love working with the talented @luke.david.perry Now days, the dish is a lot simpler than this one
