Note

  • To make the panna cotta at an angle (tall glass) gelatine needs to be added to the strawberry sauce.
  • This is just for the tall glass; sprinkle 1 teaspoon gelatine over a little water in a small bowl to absorb the gelatine, then microwave for a few seconds to dissolve the gelatine.
  • Leave to cool if hot, then mix in with the strawberry puree. You can omit this process by making the panna cotta layer first as in the other cups.
