Green Tea Panna Cotta

Recipe: Chef Jeremy Senaris

Similar in consistency to leche custard flan, a popular Filipino dessert, Jeremy’s version is amped up with matcha green tea. Purple ube crumble, delicate matcha meringue cookies, and calamansi curd complete this plated palette.

5. Let cool 10 minutes, then mix in the butter. Cool in fridge overnight or for a few hours.

Green Tea Meringue Cookies
1. In the top of a double boiler, whisk egg whites and sugar until mixture reaches 140°F. Add in green tea powder and transfer to the bowl of a mixer.
2. Using the whisk attachment, whip mixture until stiff peaks form.
