Marigold Petal and Matcha Panna Cotta
I love the color of matcha. And, when I was looking for an easy, dairy dessert that didn't need chocolate because I used all of the chocolate in the house for R's birthday cake. Really. But I didn't want a plain white panna cotta, so I decided to color my panna cotta with matcha. I also had some organic marigold blossoms and thought I'd infuse the cream with some of the petals.

I don't know why I put the egg on that small tray. There are no eggs in this recipe! Just wanted to clarify in case you were confused by my photo. I'm confused, too. Sorry...

Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings
  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 2 C organic heavy whipping cream + more for garnish
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 2 T marigold petals + more for garnish
  • 2 t matcha green tea powder
  • 1/4 C organic granulated sugar

Pour heavy cream into a medium sauce pan and heat until bubbles begin to form along the edges of the pan. Add the marigold petals and let steep for at least thirty minutes. Strain out the petals and set cream aside. 

Pour the milk into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Let bloom for 5 minutes.

Heat the infused cream until it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Add in the matcha powder and sugar. Whisk until smooth. Pour the mixture over the gelatin and stir until completely dissolved.

Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top. Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold. Just before serving, whip cream into soft peaks. Place a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream on top of the panna cotta and garnish with a few petals. Serve immediately.


  1. I've always wanted to cook with marigolds and never done it yet. It looks delicious!

  2. I've always wanted to make panna cotta and have yet to! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. What a unique flavor profile. You are definitely the matcha queen.

  4. Vitamin B1, C, and caffeine in green tea can promote gastric secretion and help digestion and fat elimination. The catechins in green tea have the effects of anti-oxidation, increase metabolism, and scavenge free radicals. It can activate protein kinase and triglyceride lipase through many actions to reduce the accumulation of fat cells, thus achieving weight loss. Therefore, drinking green tea often can achieve the effect of accelerating fat consumption and strengthening healthy weight loss.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
