Peaches are now available from California!!  The White peaches and this contest are what inspired this dish.

Grilled White Peach salad
Black Garlic and champagne marinated white peaches, with honey poached rhubarb, vanilla panna cotta, arugula, and pink pepper carbonated grapefruit.

Step 1: Panna Cotta

I love a silky smooth panna cotta for dessert, so I figured I would mix it up and use it for a sweet/savory salad.  Panna Cotta is one of the easiest desserts to make and requires very few dishes.

Panna Cotta
3/4C  Heavy Cream
1/4C  Whole Milk
1ea  Sheet Gelatin (Silver)
1t  Honey
3T  Sugar
1ea  Vanilla Bean
Pinch  Salt

The salt is very important!!
To start place gelatin in water to cover
Combine cream, milk, honey, vanilla bean and sugar in a pot.
Bring to a simmer, add the pinch of salt and taste, it should have improved the flavors of vanilla, honey, and cream.
Once simmering, squeeze the water out of the gelatin and add to the milk, stir using a spatula (you do not want to whip air into this custard).
Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes.
Grab 3-4 bowls with a wide bottom, pour the warm custard into the bowl, filling it no more than a 1/4 inch.
Place the bowls in the fridge to set.

-Next up, peaches, and rhubarb!
That combination of flavors sounds amazing. Great presentation too!
Thank you, it was very popular at the restaurant.
This requires more specialized equipment than most cooking projects on this site. That said, it sounds delicious!
It was a very fun salad to play with, we served it in the restaurant that night, and sold out! It was worth the time and effort, it made the warm spring day that much better!
