Panna cotta

  • Bring the well-drained cheese and the fresh cream to room temperature.
  • Melt the gelatin for a few seconds in the microwave and add to the cheese and cream. Mix well.
  • Strain through cheese cloth.


  • In a small saucepan, bring the maple syrup to a boil then let it caramelize over low heat.
  • Add the apple ice cider and cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Sauté the apple in a non-stick pan over high heat. Add the maple syrup and apple ice cider mixture.
  • Strain through a China cap strainer and save the juices (for the jelly and for serving the apple mix with the panna cotta)


  • After the juices cool, add the gelatin and let it dissolve.

Sablé breton

  • Mix the dry ingredients and then sabler the butter (work the dry ingredients and the butter between the fingers so that the butter gathers up the flour, not the other way around).
  • Add the egg yolk and stir until consistent.
  • Roll out until 3 mm (1/8 in.) thick on 2 sheets of parchment paper.
  • Cut out rectangles that are 10 cm x 2 cm (4 in. x 1 in.).
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 400°F (200°C).


  • In a verrine (small glass), put a layer of panna cotta and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Then add a layer of apples.
  • Pack it down a little and add a second layer of panna cotta.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour and add the room-temperature jelly.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with a sablé breton.
