Last night Wanda & I tried out a local joint's fancy imported wood-fired oven. Our dinner was off-the-hook - defo the best pizza in Fredericksburg:
mixed cured olives & peppers
sourdough loaf with herbed murky green olive oil & cracked pepper
Wanda's pizza: mushroom paté; fresh, aged, & smoked mozzarellas; speck; grana padano cheese
my pizza: tomato sauce, tomatoes, roasted peppers, grilled artichokes, ripe olives, mushrooms, basil, & garlic

hey VR have you ever made panna cotta with pectin instead of gelatin? I'm looking to make a vegatarian one for some people who don't want to eat gelatin. I was also thinking about using agar agar because I think it will keep the panna cotta closer to the traditional texture than pectin would but I have pectin on hand.

Also panna cottas I will be making:

Mint
chocolate mint (not chocolate and mint, just chocolate mint leaves).
candied orange

I have made panna cotta with agar powder cut with a little tapioca starch. Indistinguishable from having used gelatin. I doubt you would get good results from pectin unless your panna cotta base were extremely sweet & acidic, and even then you'll probably end up with more of a gel than a creamy custard.

Dessert tonight consisted of homemade white chocolate bread pudding with bourbon sauce and golden raisins. Even had a loaf of briocche for the bread filling. It was rocking good.

Things I made today that were good or will hopefully be good:

pickled spring onions
Spring onion vinaigrette (used the greens from the pickled onions)
Strawberry Panna Cotta
Southern Golden Fleece (a weird dish from one of my grandmother's cookbook from 1917, it was essentially a really weird way of making a frittata)

Things I ate today that were delicious
