Enjoy the simplicity of an Italian classic
Panna cotta originated from Italy and is a delicious cold dessert made from double cream. It is common to use vanilla bean in this recipe; however, you can easily get creative and add different flavours such as coffee or raspberry. Although this looks a simple dish to prepare, it’s important to get your measurements exact. Too much gelatine and you’ll get a rubbery textured panna cotta which noone will enjoy; too little and your dessert will topple over.
As with many simple dishes, the quality of your ingredients will make all the difference. Fresh, organic dairy and fruit will really help create the memorable panna cotta. A dessert that will be talked about for years to come!

Another option for you to try is a French parfait. It is made with marscapone and honey and is well worth the effort.
