Tips for Making and Unmolding Panna Cotta:


1. Pouring the panna cotta directly from the saucepan into ramekins or glasses can be messy.  Transfer the mixture to a container with a pouring spout or use a
measuring cup or ladle as a scoop.

2. Place the filled ramekins on a baking sheet before placing them in the refrigerator.  The baking sheet makes it easier to transport all the small ramekins at one
time.  Clear out a space in the refrigerator ahead of time, so that you can easily slide in the baking sheet.

3. Unmolding panna cotta is sometimes the step that will cause you the most concern.  Grease the ramekins with butter or spray with a light coating of cooking
spray before filling the ramekins or molds.  When you are ready to unmold, run a sharp knife around the inside edge.  Then dip the ramekin or mold into a small
bowl of hot water and invert onto a dessert plate.  If the panna cotta needs an extra nudge, slide the knife up one side of the ramekin.  Imperfections are easily
smoothed out by dipping a knife into hot water and running it around the unmolded custard.

Optional Presentation:
It is not necessary to unmold panna cotta.  You can simply pour the warm custard mixture into ramekins or glasses and chill until set.  Try using decorative wine or
cocktail glasses, teacups, espresso cups, or parfait glasses.  When you are ready to serve, spoon any garnishes directly on top of the custard.  Panna cotta may
also be molded in a 9- or 10-inch cake pan, unmolded and sliced into wedges or scooped into dessert bowls.
