Raspberry and Greek Yogurt Panna Cotta

It’s been a while. Two and a half months, actually. A lot has happened since I posted about triple chocolate doughnuts in early October. IronWhisk turned two years old, I finished my first semester of university, and I also turned eighteen.

Unfortunately, I was not able to share any of those moments with you. I was not away, however, due to any of those events.

I have been spending all of my free time working on starting a company called Gastromio, which will sell gourmet food ingredients online. After hearing countless stories on food blogs (and elsewhere) about the elusive hunts us foodie folk face when finding bizarre ingredients, I realized there needed to be an easy way to obtain small quantities of unique foods.

I hope Gastromio will help.

I will launch in a couple of weeks and at that point I will share all of the juicy details. While I have been posting snippets of some progress on Twitter, I haven’t revealed everything just yet. Stay tuned! Big, tasty things are in our future…

  1. What a great idea for a company, I wish you all the best. Congratulations on your blogs second anniversary, that’s quite an accomplishment.
    During one of my shopping sprees for a photo shoot, I spotted some lovely balsamic beads that I thought I would mention because it would be incredible with a strawberry panna cotta!
