This week’s edition of In the Kitchen features Abigail Percy and her recipe for Panna Cotta.
Abigail is a jewelry designer from Glasgow, Scotland. Had I known she was from the great city of Glasgow before I submitted the wine pairing, I might have suggested an appropriate spirit instead. Perhaps a wee dram of Auchentoshan Three Wood, produced just outside of Glasgow.
The Scotch notes of caramel, orange and spice would be a nice accent to the flavors of the Panna Cotta (especially if you added a little ground cardamon in it). Sounds like something they might serve to end a great meal at Stravaigin or the Ubiquitous Chip.
Instead, I paired Bonny Doon’s Framboise and suggested perhaps serving the panna cotta with fresh berries to make the connection between the dessert and fortified wine.
It is worth noting, that on my first trip to the UChip, one of their featured wines was from Bonny Doon — and I immediately knew it was a special place.
As I mentioned last week, I will be providing the weekly wine pairing for the recipes edited by Kristina on Design*Sponge.
