For the Blueberry panna cotta,

Place cream, blueberries, sugar, and vanilla bean into a pot.  Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes. Then place into a vitamix and puree until smooth and then add the chamomile. Allow to steep for 2-3 minutes then strain out through a fine mesh sieve. In another bowl mix water and gelatin and allow it to bloom for 3 minutes.  Then take some of the warm cream and pour it over the bowl of gelatin.  Once melted you can add all of the gelatin mixture back into the cream mixture and stir well.  Then strain the pana cotta onto a half sheet pan and place into the refrigerator until set ( at least 1 hours).

For the White chocolate panna cotta,

Place the white chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Place cream and milk into a pot.  Bring to a boil and then pour over the white chocolate. In another bowl mix water and gelatin and allow it to bloom for 3 minutes.  Then take some of the warm cream and pour it over the bowl of gelatin.  Once melted you can add all of the gelatin mixture back into the cream mixture and stir well. Then allow to cool so its not hot but not yet ready to gel. Make sure the blueberry panna cotta is cold and completely set. Then pour the cool white chocolate panna cotta over the blueberry one and place back into the refrigerator to set (allow at least another hour to two).


To Finish,

Simply take your sheet pan and cut portions out and place on four plates. Garnish each one with fresh fruit, sorrel, and borage. Take your blueberry sorbet and place one scoop on each. Serve and enjoy!
