Ingredients

Sweet Pea Panna Cotta with Cauliflower Puree and California White Sturgeon Caviar

Serves 6

  • 2 cups 1/2 & 1/2
  • 1 lb english peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 lb cauliflower, cored and cut into even size florets
  • 2 Tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2oz California white sturgeon caviar

Preparation

Sweet Pea Panna Cotta with Cauliflower Puree and California White Sturgeon Caviar

Start by preparing 6 small bowls or teacups by rubbing with olive oil. Next, put 1/4 cup cold water in a large bowl, sprinkle gelatin over it and let sit for 10 minutes. In a saucepan, bring some salted water to a boil and cook peas for 2-3 minutes, until tender. Drain and put into an ice bath to chill and stop cooking. Drain the peas and puree in a blender or food processor. Put puree through a fine mesh sieve and set aside. Heat cream and 1/2 tsp salt and lemon zest in a small saucepan until it’s hot but not quite a simmer. Stir in pea puree then pour over the gelatin, whisking until it is melted. Strain everything through a fine mesh sieve and then pour into prepared cups. Put the cups into the fridge and let chill for at least 2 hours.

Place cauliflower into a steamer or a pot with just a few inches of water and steam, covered, until tender. Stir a couple of times during cooking to make sure they cook evenly. Strain cauliflower and transfer to a food processor to puree until smooth. Add creme fraiche, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of black pepper with the motor running. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

When the panna cotta is set, hold a plate on top of the cup and flip everything over. The panna cotta should come out easily but may sometimes need a little nudge by running the tip of a butter knife around the edge.

Top the panna cotta with a big dollop of cauliflower puree and a tablespoon of caviar. Serve immediately.
