Panna cotta usually has a great deal of cream, a little sugar, and some gelatin for thickening. These two versions have less cream, and more vegetables. The agar-agar used for thickening is made from seaweed, and it's much more robust. It can be served at room temperature or even warm.
We think these savory panna cottas look delicious, like a creamy soup that has been set and served in solid form. The kabocha squash version sounds especially nice, with additions of mascarpone and Aleppo pepper. It sounds like a great way to use some of those gorgeous squash coming to market right now.
