Why this particular panna cotta?  Well, we think it’s perfectly a-little-bit-sweet and exactly the right amount of buttermilk-tangy.  Also, we like the yield.  A lot of recipes make panna cotta for 6 or 8, but with such a simple recipe, we can’t think of any reason it shouldn’t be enjoyed with just your little family or a few close friends.
