Do you like Matcha?
We love to add Matcha to any Western-style dessert to make a new and original taste.
This recipe is based on Panna cotta which is my favorite recipe of all time, and you can make a variety of tastes by adding your favorite flavor.
I didn‘t add egg because I think egg masks the subtle flavor of Matcha.
Melt in your mouth with the comfortable aftertaste. This is so good!
This is an effortless recipe that you can make a big batch.
I made these for the tea party at my neighbor temple, as I have already mentioned before. （30 servings!）
They hold a monthly memorial service for Gyoki Daishi on the 2nd of each month.
Gyoki is a high monk in the Middle age, who is considered as the incarnation of Bodhisattva of wisdom.
A group of people of the community attached to him for his great work for the society.
We get together to wishing to follow his generosity.
After the service, we enjoy tea and treat and chat!
